Was about to say folding, but you pretty much threw that idea out the window already, well.. there's nothing else.. can help save the environment by turning the computer off when it's not in use? ^_^

Er, BOINC then. Set it up once with the projects you want and then forget it. Will generally "just work" afterwards. And if you don't want that either you can make it backup often I guess or just shut it down and save the planet.

Defrag your hard drive, run virus scans, something along those lines.

That's really a poor attitude. I'm sure if you go into the folding section and post a question people will help you. They might even include pictures
