Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

LW doesn't stop downlding or uplding during the idle process!!!!! All it does is drop a connection so it can save that for others on the Gnet when it's obviously not needed. If you're not in front of your computer then you're obviously not searching for files eh! lol It make no difference at all with LW's performance!!!

That's a good answer but I don't think it is accurate. I have been using the last few versions of Pro and it definately seems to stop searching for sources when you are away.

If it does not look for new sources the downloads are going to take forever.

I live dangerously.

I turned off all power saving options. Set computer as always on (which it is) never shut off HDD, monitor. disable hibernation.

Set screen saver to 840 minutes. ( I don't know why this number except my screensaver never comes up )

Refresh all searches before I go to bed.

AFAIK, LW stops looking for sources whe it displays the following statuses:
"Need More Sources" (1)
"Awaiting Sources" (2)

(supposing you don't get the even less desireable statuses like "Couldn't move to Library" and others)


In both cases, you have to reinitialise the search yourself if you want your dld to have a chance aat continuing.
In case (1) however, you can press the "Find more sources" button and LW will look for sources for 300 secs. Also (unless I'm mistaken), if you close LW with that status on your dlds and the reopen it, it will try to find some sources.
(2) is a more terminal case, where LW has "given up" looking for sources and you have to do it yourself with a manual search.
Now, please don't start with the usual rant of: "Man, other P2P do this by themselves" and "Why the hell doesn't LW do it? I'm not a babysitter!" 'cause the why's have been answered before. all you have to do for some answers is search with the search function the LW section of the forums.

Cheers

Brr. Your PC will implode from lack of rest.
I have my screensaver up and after 10 mins of screensaver images, the display turns completely off (kinda like a sleep mode). LW stays on though: the comp itself doesn't sleep.

actually screensavers don't ease the burden on your system, nor are they really necessary if you have a Flatscreen monitor. They are there for CRT (cathode ray tube) screens, if you have a high contrast image, like white text on a dark field, the guns are bombarding the phosphorous coating with ions and over a period of time will permanantly burn the image on the picture tube.

it's actually surprising how many screensavers aren't proper screensavers. If there is a non-moving area, like the coral in the MS underwater ss, that is still going to burn into a CRT.

just a tidbit.
