    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.
