You're the first that I have come across that wanted their bandwidth throttled.  Perhaps your provider has the "all you can eat" plan?

well think about this way.
i have 6 gb in total. I download at the speed of 1MB persecond max. 100KB on bittorrent.
I want to download a 4 gb file automatically, i dont have time to go on during offpeak hours to turn on the downloads. If i have use all onpeak hour downloads, i loose offpeak limits too. So i want to download major files sololy during offpeaks.
I use azureus client - in the client you can select max speeds for up and down - right clicking the up/down speed in the lower right corner...... Im not sure if you can limit Bittorrent within the program.. I used to use it but cant remember if that option is in there. you can always switch clients if its not in there. http://azureus.sourceforge.net/

thats not what i want...
i need to limit my speed during onpeak and uncap my speed during off peak automatically. azureus do not have this option for offpeak and onpeak.
I see..

I have not seen a bandwidth shaper that has timers in it.. but I dont see why you cant use a bandwidth shaper in conjunction with the built in windows program scheduler - you could set it to run from 12pm to 12am and that would work.
