    How about if I turn one pc off and keep the other on for folding. I think that sounds like a fair compromise.

    I'll be away (fingers crossed) so most of my PCs will be off. Leaving my media pc on, don't want to miss my scheduled recordings

    Both the server and PC will be off during the 3rd. And possible 2 & 4th as well. Seeing as its May and its a good fishing month, so i'll be out in the fresh air with the wildlife and fish to keep me company.

    Sod the computers, they aren't that important.
