This last sale has been a bit of a let down for me, only purchased 2 games i think the whole sale.  Nothing I really want or at a decent sale price.

I'm a little the same and I have sooo much catching up to do... having all these platforms has really expanded my wall of shame!  And I am still debating whether to make Zombie U my first console zombie game.

I know this is probably asking too much, but does steam have the option to schedule your downloads so as to take advantage of off peak quotas?

I have a 300gb quota per mth of which 200 is off peak (midnitght to 6am), and i would rather use this.

Leave steam open (with downloads on) then put your pc to hibernate. Then schedule your pc to wake up at 12am then sleep again at 6am :)

do you need to login to your pc when turning on or waking?

give it a test run to sleep during the day and then wake it up 5mins later. see if it does anything.

Nope. For some reason it wakes the PC, but won't accept my login details so goes no further than the login screen
