Only run at certain times ?

Post by Maple38 »

Hello, looking for a solution to only have Folding@home run during the day as my PC fans are very loud when I'm trying to sleep. Is there any software that allows this to be done?

Currently that's not a standard functionality of the client, but it can be done using the system's task scheduler. See viewtopic.php?p=356264&hilit=send+pause#p356264
