Been experimenting with dTunes..

i have picked my torrent, prepared it, gone into terminal and done the old

./getttorrent -it begins the download

i enable backgrounding so terminal keeps running. go into another app and do whatever i need to i.e send a txt

go back into Terminal, and it's stopped.

I then tried doing this again- but i stayed in Terminal but then the auto-lock comes on and stops the download.

does anyone have a way round all this to keep it running/working etc?

Thanks

Maybe plug it in to the wall and set automatic lock to never.

No that is not sarcasm you asks how to keep the phone on and out of sleep mode. That is how I do it when I have to ssh into my phone. If this Is not what your are asking then I guess you need to clear up your question.
