Awasu uses a Microsoft component to do the downloads and unfortunately, it's not very good. It's slow and unstable, so if it crashes, Awasu re-schedules the download for later, so it might take some time for the download to succeed. I had a look around for alternatives, but this was the only one
However, there are some other options. If you just want the HTML page, it's easy to write a plugin to grab it. If you can code a bit, I can post something here to get you started, otherwise shoot me an email if you'd like me to write something for you.
If you want the associated images and other stuff as well, that's a bit more complicated. We could maybe get Firefox or wget to download the page and do a "Save Page As", although it's a bit messy.
