Default Locked and Downloading

So, this question is probably actually pretty simple. It's even possible it's been answered before, but I have no idea what I'd search for to find it.

Is it possible for me to have my computer locked (i.e. at the password screen but not logged out) and still continue downloading via bittorrent. I'm on a wireless network, and whenever I lock it the internet connection takes a powder.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Try checking your power settings and change them to suite. I'm sure most laptops go to sleep after a certain time of inactivity. If you power is plugged in, you could change it to not sleep at all.
