    Sleep/Logout +Bittorrent
    Hey folks, I just switched from using a PC to a mac-mini, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

    I've had some trouble though, I'm trying to use bittorrent and it doesn't quite work. I get everything running and connected and downloading at a good rate, but when I leave it overnight and come back in the morning it has made almost no progress. Since I don't think it's the torrents fault, I believe something is halting the program (maybe an auto logout or something?) after I leave the computer alone.

    I have auto-sleep and auto-shutdown turned off under powersaving, is there anything else I can do?

    I'm using the basic bittorent client.

    Seeing as you have both sleep and auto logoff turned off I would suggest trying another client.

    Try Azureus, Bits on Wheels, or Transmission.

    It's possible that your upload rate is too high. Depending on your connection, you shouldn't be uploading more than 20-50kbps. Your download rate will drastically suffer if your uploading too much.
