Noob folding questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I just started folding today and I followed allow of the guides but I still have a few quick questions. First of all I'm using both my GPU and CPU to fold and I'm running a i7 920 stock as well as two Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 GPUs.

1. How do I configure F@H to stop and shutdown my computer after completing a WU?

Only way to do so would be writing your own script that reads the unitinfo.txt file and when it reaches 100% it would shutdown and switch to another shortcut with -send all flag then shutdown your PC.
Though I do not have a good idea on how to do so, it is possible just need some one that is good with programming.

But I would only do that with the SMP client considering GPU units finish rather quickly.

Any reason why you want it to do only one WU and then quit?

Well I'm running it on my home PC and I have utorrent running as well. So I'm looking to seed when its working on a WU and then after it finishes I want it to shut down. But its not that big of a priority anymore because I realized that WU can be paused.
