Well not all games have a server tool available to the public, but if you want to run a server just find a game that has a server tool available and download it. It should be fairly simple, though if you wanted to run a minecraft server specifically its a little more complicated.

OP, just be aware that running your PC at full load all day will increase the electricity bill a bit.

Multitask, multiply that 3 times.

Fold (the millionth suggestion ftw), chat with friends, run programs that won't even bother folding at all, monitor your temperatures, download games (if you have steam) movies, music, youtube, roam the net, sort out your files in any older hdds, customize your desktop (BIG one here, try using fences or Rainmeter. I <3 rainmeter but takes time to personalize)

Maybe any other software that you may use at school, in your own home to do your work.

Gimp for example, I was editing 5600x3850 resolution and bam, saved as 0% compression, PNG image in 3 seconds (literally)

Oh, and listen to music, headbang while you attempt to do these tasks.
