I suggest you ...

Add a 'pause' feature

It would be cool if it was possible to 'pause' a freenet node. I mean, stop all network traffic, warn peers that we are on pause, but keep the node alive.

That would allow short downtimes for online gaming without the hassle of having to restart the node and wait for it becoming usable again.

        This would be fantastic, currently struggling to get work done..
        A limited bandwith/resources button would be very handy

        I would really really love to have this, but in the same way as dmitry.a.novikov says. So 0% = paused, 100% = normal operation, but also something possible like 20%.

        It would be nice to control bandwidth allocation 0-100%

        after you implement it through the web interface it should to be trivial to create a small tool that allows to pause/restart freenet from a tray icon. i'm sure someone will handle that :)
