FileMaker Server on the same laptop as the client. What happens if I close lid?

I'm returning to a question I posted a few weeks ago that never got a response:  Safe Developing on a Laptop: Local File on Laptop vs. File, Hosted on Laptop Installation of Server

 

Long story short... this is the scenario:

 

Scenario A:

Running FileMaker Server on my laptop, have hosted FM File open.

I absent mindedly close the lid on laptop. What happens?

 

Scenario B:

Using a FileMaker file locally on my laptop.

I absent mindedly close the lid on laptop. What happens?

 

I've been operating in Scenario B (local file) for some time, but want to start doing a better job backing up my file, which has, for sake of argument, 100GB of remote container data. I am a consumer using this as a personal database and file management tool, but am developing it with an eye towards selling it to other people for the same purpose.
