BitTorrent only works if people seed. Once Vuze has seeded back a bit more it will start downloads again. You can tweak the queuing settings in preferences to maximise the potential of your internet connection but Vuze is built to seed so you can't simply tell it to stop.

You can't do that.

Read about the queue system and its settings:
http://wiki.vuze.com/w/UG_Options#Queue_options

"First priority" options control, which seeding torrents have priority over the downloads.

Is being asked to share what others took the time to upload to you so bad?
