    Now I swear, uTorrent had this before but apparently not...maybe I'm going mad?

    Simply put I use Bittorrent from time to time (don't look at me like that, bit torrent's legal, content theft isn't the - two are not always the same) and I hate having my machine left up and running when it doesn't need to be.


    Can anyone recommend a client that lets me auto sleep/auto shutdown the Mac when the downloads are complete, or seeding reaches a certain %?

    Transmission can be set to run an Applescript when downloads are finished. You could just have that script sleep the machine for you.

    Certainly an answer. I may well look into that if nothing more...straight forward. turns up. I can't believe there's not a Mac client with a simple drop box option :-/

    Yeah, it's definitely not in the Mac version. The uTorrent forums have been asking for it for...well, some time now. But for some reason it just never works it's way in.

    Shutdown:
    tell application "Finder"
    shut down
    end tell

    Restart:
    tell application "Finder" to restart

    Sleep:
    tell application "Finder"
    sleep
    end tell

    I believe it does. The article you linked is not talking about Applescripts.

    Save your Applescript then go to this section of Transmission prefs and check the box and point to your script.
