#5742 new Enhancement

Torrents pause when system is active, and resume when system is idle

Description

An option can be added to the preferences-> Downloading window that enables the user to select if the torrents should be paused when the system is active, and resumed as soon as the system is idle. This would save a lot of time for users with limited speeds, who face a lot of inconvenience when they try to browse internet while simultaneously downloading torrents. I found this on the internet which might be of assistance to anyone interested - http://itzsreekumar.wordpress.com/2011/06/16/program-to-resume-all-your-transmission-torrent-downloads-when-your-computer-is-idle-and-pauses-when-its-active-3/

I've also added a patch the GTK component patch to see the GUI change. I'm new to transmission so I don't know if I've adhered to the coding methodology, but please do tell me if I've done something wrong.
