I can set no new tasks at project level, but if I need to stop receiving tasks on a complete machine, I have to stop each project individually. There should be, (and probably is...), a simple method to do this.

The name implies that it would stop network activity as a whole. That being the case, it would not be able to upload completed tasks when they complete.

Multi-select all projects (mouse drag up from the bottom is easiest) and click 'No new tasks' once.

Edit: Or for users who find the drag operation problematic - click first, shift-click last.

The only conventional shortcut we're missing is Ctrl-A for 'select all'. That would work (with some degree of usefulness) for all three lists - projects, tasks, and transfers. Remember that you can Ctrl-click to toggle individual lines for those times when you want 'all except...'. I might suggest that.
