questions about vuze

i read this about seeding - Of course, participation in seeding files means that you are making available some of your computer bandwidth to others.

1. how does your computer bandwidth get used?
2. when you stop seeding is that what a leech is?
3. when you stop seeding is your bandwidth back to normal and not being used up?
4. to stop seeding you just click on the file and click stopped, right, just checking and when you open up vuze it wont reactivate unless you let it again?

thanks sorry iam new to this

I think you can find answers to many of your questions in http://faq.vuze.com/
You might also start here: http://wiki.vuze.com/index.php/This_funny_word

The "bandwidth" i.e. your internet connection gets used both for your download, and for send material to others (you uploading to other users). Everything you download, comes from other users who see that as uploading from their perspective.

No. BitTorrent is built on the equal exchange even while downloading.

What do you mean by normal?
You have an internet connection from your ISP, which connection has some defined speed = bandwidth.
If you stop Vuze, yes, all Vuze traffic stops, and the whole "bandwidth" is free again for your other internet usage. Is that what you asked?

As long as you have Vuze on, it will use as much bandwidth as you let it, as it tries to download/send material as quickly as possible. This has nothing to do with the phase, if you are downloading or seeding a torrent.

Vuze uploads the ready parts of the file while you are still downloading the remaining part. So, during "download phase" it is both downloading and uploading, and (after torrent is completely downloaded) during "seeding phase" it is only uploading.

You might read sections B and C of my Guide, where speed monitoring and possible speed settings are discussed:
