qBittorrent client freezing extended usage

Post by eindhatre » Tue Dec 31, 2019 10:38 pm

Would appreciate some help with this.

v4.2.0 initially downloaded when I swapped from uTorrent. Was extremely happy, and still am. Upgraded to v4.2.1 about a week ago and ever since, if I leave my Mac (running macOS 10.15.2) for more than 15-20 minutes (usually 5-8 hours though overnight) with qBittorrent operational, downloading, and on the main screen, and I click anywhere in the qBittorrent client, there is an immediate freezing of the client and within 5-10 seconds appears as "not responding" in the Force Quit application, and will only resolve by force quitting the application and rebooting it. No issues immediately on rebooting.

Downgraded to v4.2.0 again 2 days ago and problem is identical (wasn't an issue until upgrade to v4.2.1).

Doesn't seem to be a problem if laptop is being used for other purposes/apps whilst the client is operating in background, only when the app is left open and is front and centre.

Would appreciate thoughts.

I have a similar problem here on my Mac mini running Catalina.

I taught that it had something to do with my external drive going to sleep... so I installed an utility that prevents drives from sleeping... I still have the same problem. Everything else works fines besides qBittorrent on my Mac.

Have you had it reinstall? I'd suggest, first delete it and reinstall it again.

Might it help

Yes I did this... I even cleaned out all the préférence files before reinstalling... still same problem.

This problem is somewhat hard to reproduce because it doesn’t happen all the time...

A few more things to try:

Disable your A/V.

Temporarily turn off the firewall on the machine where you're running qBt. (Not a long term solution, of course.)

Try the same machine on a different network.
