    Nope. The power switch of the monitor is for the monitor only. The CPU is different. You can switch off your monitor and leave your CPU to download continuously. It's good practice especially when your downloads go from overnight to days.

    No but your machine may go to sleep. To disable automatic Sleep:

    In Windows 10 you can get there from right clicking on the start menu and going to Power Options. Click change plan settings next to your current power plan. Change "Put the computer to sleep" to never. Click "Save Changes"
