Hello experts, i'd lke to know how can i manage to pause and resume downloads in vista without using prorams such as download acceleraor because in my college we only have acess to internet, i think all other ports are closed, i tested DAP but i could not connect...
I also tried to put my notebook in hibernation mode and continue the download after... but the download seems to be freezed...

    you could install Mozilla and use its download manager? Vista doesnt ship with a download manager of its own, I was very disappointed by that, it seems like such an obvious, easy add-on, but hey-ho...

    Also, Vista has terrible issues with its sleep mode, you may have to wait for the first service pack to be released for it to work.

    Wish I had better news to give!
