I only crunch when my computers are turned on and I don't leave them on 24/7. I just like to get the maximum number of credits when they are on doing work behind the scenes. I do not operate a BOINC farm and only have 4 computers that crunch work units and two of them are very slow. The other two crunch both CPU and GPU work units but again only when they are turned on and not doing anything to demanding. I highly value the time my computers work on BOINC projects and the electricity thing is just a standing joke.

The work unit doesn't get done when the computer is off and dumbfoundly when you do turn off your computer off in the middle of a work unit and you pass that 12 hour mark the result is sent in no matter hou far along you got the previous day. So -- power on uses electricity and the work unit trudges along to completion after 12 hours work. Hopefully it passes muster and you get your 25 credits. The same power/electricity is being used for 12 hours only to get an "INVALID" upon completion. Anyway you read it, the computer was powered up for those 12 hours of time that went down the drain. A total waste of the computers processing time and electricity.

All I can say is that it is a friggen waste of computer time to have a work unit trudge along just to find out that after 12 hours of run time to have it come up as invalid. Again a friggen waste of my computer time. Can I get a rebate on my electric bill, Please!
