depends the download. i am sure in sleep mode there is no interent so all downloads will stop, when it turns back on, windows updates and a few other things should continue to download, but these also usually work even if you sut down. If you are downloading something off the internet the downlod will probably stop. You can use a thirdpardy program which will manage the downloads for you and download them when it can, and when you trn your computer back on finish them.
