Dont know if this is in the pipeline, but what about a way to tell a project not to download any more WU's.

Seti is my number 1 project followed by Pirates.

When one of my machines ran out of Seti units I switch it to another project, when Seti comes back online I would like to finish crunching the WU's that I have got, but not download any more.

At the moment you have to detach from project which means that the WU's just have to time expire.

A tick box or something would be a lot nicer way of leaving a project, dont you agree.

There is a better workaround in 2.25 but it is still not fully implemented. It is on the list of things to do though.
