Leaving window open...how long?

Just a quick question...how long do you normally leave the download window open after you've finished? Enough to match the original file size? More?

I always try to keep it open enough to re-share it one time at least, if not several...but obviously that doesn't really mean that one person got the complete episode. With a few hundred people DLing, it could mean only about .5% per person.

Just wondering.

I leave it open as long as I am not doing anything that requires a lot of bandwidth. Longest was about 2 days. Just do what you can, I run 3 to 4 torrents at a time, and about the same finished and uploading.

If I am not busy getting more stuff then I leave it on until 100%. This is how I usually do it because I usually dl when I am not home or asleep. If I really want to get something else really quick then I dl for about two hours after I'm done.

I leave my windows open til I go to bed, but I have ADSL and have only 128 kBit/s upload...
I think they made i t this way in Germany to prevent to much downloading...but it sucks when u want to share but can't do it....

I leave the uploads just enough to allow me to still use my net connection while surfing.

I have 10 GB upload so I usually let them open until it's wasted. The month after, I reopen some.

I normally keep one torrent seeding whenever my brother isn't playing TFC on his computer [we have cable, and my torrents lag him considerably]. One window doesn't affect my browsing much.
Most of my seeding is done overnight. I just leave my computer on and go to bed.
