vv Posted July 20, 2009 Report Share Posted July 20, 2009 Let's take a look at "Options | Auto Shutdown" menu. As you can see - menu contains a lot of similar pairs with one difference - condition when the action should be taken. Is it either when program completes download or when program completes everything.I think the current menu "Options | Auto Shutdown" could be re-designed to avoid duplications.One of possible ways could be this one. Make 3 groups:1. Condition1.1. Downloads complete1.2. Everything completes2. Action:2.1. Do nothing2.2. Quit2.3. Hibernate2.4. Standby2.5. Shutdown3. Continuation3.1 Finish torrentFirst group determines condition when program should take an action. Group could be made with two radio buttons or just one item with check box.Second group is several actions to be taken when condition specified in first group is achieved. It's group of radio buttons. I did not include "Reboot" there because I do not see its value comparing to "Shutdown". But I don't mind to include it in the group either...Third group determines what to do with torrents after the action is taken. One may want to continue seeding torrents, while another one may want to finish (stop) torrent. The latter is useful in cases when you want to put computer in e.g. standby (or take any other action) when you're done with seeding. So, next time you resume computer - you don't want to notify trackers that you're still seeding (because it's not your goal), and soon after that you finally stop the seeding manually. It creates unnecessary traffic that could be easily avoided if uTorrent will scrap the torrent before it goes into standby (if user wants it).After restarting uTorrent the second group could be re-set to "Do nothing", while the rest of groups should keep value specified in the last session.If you want more details please look at this post:http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=59901 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
