Updating while playing?
I'm just installing Skyrim again and want to play Tomb Raider meanwhile. But everytime I start a game the update/install of Skyrim stops. Is just a display error and it installs nevertheless or do I really have to stop playing any steam games in order to install/update another one?

Alt tab out of the game, resume the download, and tab back in.

I think it's frustrating as well and they should implement an option to not disable downloads while playing.

This was probably intended, as not many people have a strong connection.
This happens to everyone, don't worry, it's just that Steam can't determine whether the game has to do with multiplayer or not, so it turns off the downloads for good measure.

see i have a similar problem but for me i cant play skyrim for more that 5 min ( wich is enough to get out of the main menu and barley into game) before steam force exits the game and checks for updates its done this multiple times in a row and had been doing it for going on two days and it wont stop

Okay, tabbing out works though it is annoying. But at least the user –it's not naturally– is able to manage this problem.
