I have an application that uses a lot of bandwidth & disk but few processor cycles. If I'm active at my workstation, the bandwidth use remains high. If I leave my workstation inactive for 10-15 minutes (no mouse or keyboard activity) the bandwidth drops to about 10% of normal levels. As soon as I move the mouse, it jumps up again. I would like for it to use the max available bandwidth all the time.

What's going on?
