I travel a lot like I suspect many developers and often operate on low bandwidth connections.
Whilst the Check default remotes for updates every <x> minutes option is both configurable and possible to disable, it seems that I have had it running on poor connections with a high frequency (10 minutes) and have been wasting a lot of bandwidth.
It would be very useful to have some form of always-visible (but possible to disable) background process notification and and a corresponding option on the notifications to disable background operations for this session.
I've spoken to a few people about this before and it is an issue, especially when developers have 40 or so repositories but they're only using one of them for a month. They don't want their other repositories to refresh, only the one they're actively using. I've filed an issue for this one here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-1454
Hope that helps
I think the option would be something really simple, like a checkbox next to a repo in the bookmarks list. More likely we'd have something like "24 days since last check" with a green/amber/red indicator so it's visually showing you what's going on without having to read anything. If you're happy with that you could make further comments on the JIRA issue and perhaps mark this as answered :)
