Nope, the Steam Deck won't download games while it's in sleep mode. You'll need to keep it awake if you want those downloads to keep going!

Nope, the Steam Deck needs to be on and active to download games. Sleep mode won't help you there.

Steam Deck downloads only when it's awake. Make sure to leave it on if you're waiting for a big game to install.

Nah, it doesn鈥檛. It's a bit of a bummer, but you'll need to leave the Steam Deck on to download those games.
