bburke Posted October 14, 2006 Report Share Posted October 14, 2006 I know that the client can disable standby while there are active torrents, but have provisions been made for laptops here? Laptops can run on either battery or receptacle power. The standby option is great for receptacle power, but not so much for battery power. I think there should be an option that can be customized by the user that satisfies the following criteria: -When on battery power, if the remaining power gets to a certain percentage, such as 10% or below (can be customized), standby is enabled; -When the computer is nearing standby (according to the time settings specified in power options) the client will pause all torrents to ensure no data loss; -An option to allow standby during active torrents WHEN ON BATTERY POWER but not otherwise (my second criterion above would also apply here as to prevent data loss); -An option in the speed wizard that pops up the first time you run the program that allows the user to choose if they are using a laptop or desktop, which would then automatically configure the above options with default values.I don't know if any of these are in the works or are already present. I just wanted to throw them out there. Thanks for looking. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
