    Shut down after current wu

    Post by Great_Shovel on Mon Nov 22, 2010 2:22 pm

    An option to shut down the computer after current wu is complete.
    I leave town quite often and do not like leaving my rig folding while gone so if there were a feature where you can set it to shut down the computer after finishing a wu. Several times I have waited upwards of several hours so that I can make sure that the wu is done and uploaded before leaving. It would also be good for non-fulltime folders so that they can set the computer to run 1 wu overnight then turn off the computer (similar to the feature in the ps3 when folding)

    I like this idea and I think it would be very useful. The way I would implement this feature is a single option. When enabled this option will enable oneunit on all the clients, then shutdown the computer once all the clients have completed the WUs.

    Now for the implementation details. The only problem I see with this feature is if someone leaves it enabled by mistake and it results in the Tracker shutting down the computer when the user didn't intend for this to happen. There are a couple ways I could do this:

    1. Make the option apply only to the current session (once the Tracker is restarted this feature would need to be enabled again)
    2. Add some sort of notification on the main window that this option is enabled, but have the setting save when restarting the Tracker.

    Which one would you prefer? This feature is fairly simple to add since I can build it into the existing oneunit code.

    I would prefer the first option. That would prevent issues where someone would forget about it. I personally am in the config about 5-10 times a day switching clients and options and making sure that everything is how I want it to be.

    Oh I love the ppd being shown for each client but I was wondering if there was a way to show the actual value to expect from the wu youre working on. Like bigadv I get about 29-31k ppd but I have to wait till it drops before I can see how much the single wu was worth. This is just something that would be nice but not necessary bc I dont use hfm or any other program for folding bc yours is that good

    I will use the first option then.

    I'd like a variation on this option...

    I want to fold at night but not during the day so I've been setting oneunit in the morning and then restarting the tracker in the evening when I'm done using the computer.

    Sometimes I forget to unset oneunit and I only get one WU done overnight when normally, I can get 2 or 3 done.

    I'd like to have an option to set oneunit and then have it automatically clear after the current WU is complete but I don't want to shutdown the computer.
