Pause syncing for a period of time

Pause syncing for a period of time

Explorer | Level 3

I would like to be able to pause syncing for a period of time.  Maybe some options like 30 minutes, 2 hours, 1 day etc or custom.  That way I dont forget to turn it back on but I dont have the cpu and bandwidth usage while im making alot of file changes.  

 

Thanks,

This was a good idea implemented very poorly.  I NEED to be able to pause syncing for an indefinite period of time.  This option has now been removed in favour of only allowing me to pause for 30 mins, 1 hour or the subjective "until tomorrow".  Not even a 24 hour period.
