Folding one WU then stopping [answered]

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
As much as I'd like to fold 24/7 I can't (electricity cost, need the PC for video encoding). What I want to do is set up the client to download and complete a WU then shut down (or at least exit the client). Kind of like how the PS3 does it where you set it to do one WU then it shuts off. I really don't want to just shut down the client in the middle of a WU because I may not start it up again to complete it by the deadline. I'd like to set it to start a WU when I go to bed and close the client when it finishes it. I'm using the FAH 6.34 client.

why not just manually do it when you go to bed/wake up?

There is a flag/setting to shutdown the client when done. Enter -config and go through the advance options.

Use the -oneunit flag. It will automatically quit after completing one work unit.

^ This.

FAH GPU Tracker V2 will allow you to click a box to activate the oneunit flag. I find its easier.

Because it may be in the middle of a WU and I'd rather finish the WU then close the client.

You know, the v7 beta has its many flaws, but it does have the option to allow you to Fold x WUs before pausing. Might be something to consider if you want more than just 1 WU at a time.
