Utorrent downloads stops while AFK


Recommended Posts

Well, they stop. The files im downloading cease to download and upload when AFK.

What could be the problem here? Utorrent itself or some external factor?

Network setup:

My computer -> WLAN AP -> Router (ports configured and working) -> Internet


ZoneAlarm (ports OK)

Never had this problem before. Everything is OK except for the AFK issue.

Tips and help is greatly appreciated! :)



UPDATE: I very recently installed FlashGet , and it may be the case that this program (as it is a download manager) have some settings enabled that halts my downloads while im inactive. Could this be it? Anyway, i'll disable it and see how everything fares.

ISSUE SOLVED: I found that if i disabeled the screensaver the download would continue as normal. Anyone else experiencing this?

Sounds like it would be a Windows issue more than anything... µTorrent itself doesn't care whether the computer is in screensaver mode or not; if it is running, and the computer is on, it will just go on with its business of transferring data. Some other users have mentioned having this issue, but I know I've never been able to reproduce the problem on my end (AFAIK, most people don't run into this issue).
