Do applications keep running while the pc is in sleep mode?

Hi all, I have Windows 7 home premium, and I was wondering if while the pc is in sleep mode applications keep running. I'm asking this because using Vuze (a BitTorrent client)
while the pc is in sleep mode the download seems to pause - can it be or it's just a slow torrent?

thank you very much
