Paused Torrents Un-Pause Upon Restart

Post by jonkeys » Thu Oct 10, 2019 4:25 pm

Hi folks,

I think this fits into the "Is the 'pause' button actually a 'stop' button" discussion, as I'll pause the majority of my torrents to manually manage what I'm downloading at any given time, but when I restart qBittorent, some paused torrents un-pause and begin to download, which mean I have to annoyingly pause them again.

How can I keep torrents permanently paused, as in stopped?

Many thanks

I'm on Windows, but you can't do that. On Github, Stop requests are being denied because "qBittorrent's 'pause' is like uTorrent's stop". This is false, because on uTorrent stopped torrents are NOT resumed with the Resume All function. Only Paused ones are being resumed.

Obviously, this has NOTHING to do with peer connections and the like.

So, the Resume All function in qBittorrent is useless or crippled for me (and others, like you), because I have several stopped/paused torrents on the list I want to keep, but not resume with the Resume All function.

It's perfectly fine if you don't want to implement a Stop function, but why keep telling us it's exactly the same as uTorrent? It is not.
