Laptop only runs SMP @ 50% CPU Usage

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to let my dual-core netbook give folding a shot to see what it could do but for some reason it only hits 50% CPU usage.

It's plugged into the wall, and I have it set at 100% in the config.

Any suggestions?

Was the -smp flag added (correctly) before you first ran it? If not, you would have downloaded a Unicore WU.

If you restart the client, you should see a line called "Arguements: -smp" if it was added correctly after all the ####'s.

Well I just started it right before I went to bed, woke up for work this morning, saw the wonderful PPD numbers then shut it off lol. I was hoping for at least 1000. It'd leave it on if it could.
