Soooo.... standby mode, or sleep mode, whatever, on a Vita isn't really standby or sleep when it comes to downloads?  My idea of sleeping is, uh, you know, not Doing stuff.  But, I guess that's only with PS3, PSP, and PCs, etc.  Not with Vita.  My head hurts.  But, I still want a Vita, because, well, it's freaking awesome!!

well ive noticed that it downloads anytime your vita is screen is on, if you leave it on and it turns off because of the power save settings, you know the whole turn off after 1 , 5 , 10 min thing,then it doesnt download

That isn't true. I have downloaded things at least 20 times including full games and demos. IF you let your screen go to sleep by itself, the download will continue. If you force it to go to sleep (as of my last try) the download will NOT continue.

But, I can confirm numerous times downloading if I let the Vita sleep on its own.

If you put it into sleep mode manually, it will not download. If it goes to sleep automatically, it will still download.

Hate to naysay but I've had both happen. When it goes into autostandby and a dl stops I just turn the camera app on, no sleep mode after that, best if plugged in though, doing that drains battery life quick. This is even after 1.66 patch.
