In Windows, I'd recommend using the FAHControl tool. Find the Folding@home icon in the taskbar near the clock, right-click on it, and select Advanced Control. You should now see the current workunits as well as a log. FAHControl won't sleep on you and will keep updating all the time.
F@h is now the top computing platform on the planet and nothing unites people like a dedicated fight against a common enemy. This virus affects all of us. Lets end it together.

I would even recommend leaving the Web Control or FAHControl closed when you aren't using them. The client will fold with them closed, it reduces the number of queries to the stats database, and releases some CPU and other resources on your system.

When I hover with my mouse over the window, it wakes up from sleeping, so I dl an automatic mouse mover/clicker and set it to move endlessly in a pettern over that window to avoid it from ever sleeping again :D


On youtube there's a video of this software Sobolsoft "Automatic mouse move and click software"
A link for the program is in the video description.

I couldn't not link to youtube as that is not allowed.

Welcome to the F@H Forum Mike35,

If you don't want your computer to sleep, why not disable sleep on it instead of downloading a software? Not sure of your system but here are some pointers:
Windows 10: https://www.wikihow.com/Prevent-Windows ... g-to-Sleep
Windows 8: https://www.dummies.com/computers/opera ... and-sleep/
Windows 7: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/7564/ho ... windows-7/
ETA:
Now ↞ Very Soon ↔ Soon ↔ Soon-ish ↔ Not Soon ↠ End Of Time
