Suggestion: Add a setting to prevent suspend when lottaNZB is active

Asked by bofphile on 2009-02-13

lottaNZB is a really great application but there's one thing that annoy me. Whenever I leave it downloading, my computer goes into hibernation mode even though the download is not over.
Could you add an option in the settings to prevent suspend/hibernation when lottaNZB is active (like Transmission does) ?

Thanks a lot ! Keep up the good work.

This is a nice idea for a plug-in!

We'll take a look at it. Thanks for your suggestion.

Hi bofphile,

thanks for making this feature request. I just tried to find out how Transmission does this and I found the following code:

We could really try to port it to Python.

Just implemented it and it works just fine. :-) I guess the code will land in main soon.

Thanks a lot for your quick answers to both of you. ;-)
You're doing an amazing job with this application.

Should I mark this question as solved ?
