Default Torrent download schedule?

Anyone know how to schedule torrents to download at certain times?

I use utorrent and I only want to download from 2am - 12pm which is my offpeak time but I go to bed before 2am and don't want to waste peak usage data..

Bit Commet has done build into it. It's rather easy to use, but rather limited as you only have HIGH, LOW and OFF.

Azureus has a third party plug-in callled Speed Scheduler that will allow you do to the same thing. It might take a little more time to program, however you have find tune to what speed you want according ot the time and day of the week. It's not hard to use, however it's a lot more detailed.

Both programs are extremely useful. Especially considering that my Off Peak Download time starts at 3 am in the morning.

Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)
Mobile Phone : Samsung Galaxy 5 Note SM-N920IConsole : Play Station 4

Awesome, I didn't know that option was there. Works good I just tested it. Thanks!

I would hate to change BT client because everything is customised. Was a pain in the *** when I changed from azureus to utorrent but was for the better.

You would also hate to change since UT is the best
