Hi All, I have Fedora24 with Trasmission 2.92-1.fc24 installed. When i schedule a torrent download over night the system is frozen when i check in the morning. The download seems stopped after some time because downloaded percentage has only increase by few percents like 25% or 30%. When this happens the system is not responding to the keyboard. The only option to recover is doing a hard reset. Is this a transmission bug or is it something to do with the kernel ? Because the last time i tried a different native torrent app i had the same problem. But this problem was not there when i used Vuze which is a java application.

Just found to root cause. Disabling Bluetooth did the trick. If i have bluetooth enabled while a high load network activity such as torrent download happening the system get freeze. Disabling the bluetooth solved the issue. I found this out from some old thread under ubuntu forum which has cause the same kind of a issue in kernel 3.x as well.
