Well, 2 Things:
1. As already mentioned before:
If JD notices that the user is away and/or the enabled captcha services do not work -> Disable all links with captchas.

Now to the problem, described here:
Imagine the user is away and a captcha service is active.
Now, sometimes it might won't get a response so some links will get a "Captcha skipped" state.
The user can remove this manually later.
Now my suggestion:
As long as JD knows that the solver is still active - because other captchas/downloads work fine - it can re-enable the "Captcha skipped" state for these links after a certain amount of time which should also be adjustable via advanced settings.

This feature was requested before already - just not as detailed as I explained it here.
