What would checking this do? Merely curious.

Exactly what it says. It slows down the download speed when the downloader is not "active", that is, it isn't in front of you. So if you're browsing the web or something, it would be "inactive" and will slow itself down.

The point of this is so that the downloader doesn't negatively impact your use of the internet while it's downloading (slowing your YouTube cat videos to a crawl). On the other hand, it will make the game download much more slowly.
