Question Met my goals for the season, how to shutdown?

I've completed my goals for this season (top 100 in each work type) and I don't want to cool these hot machines though the summer months at my house.

What do people recommend as the best method for doing a temporary shutdown of all work without inadvertently holding onto any assignments?

TIA,
Vidmar

The way that worked best for me was to go to "Options->Preferences" and set "Days of work to queue up:" to 0. This way, you can still be part of Primenet/Prime95/GIMPS, but you won't automatically be given work to do.

exit Prime95. go to prime.txt and add the line
NoMoreWork=1

Then start Prime95 and when you finish the ones you have (or unreserve them) you won't get any more assignments.

Seems a shame to lose a whole summer of work...

How about slowing the machines to the point they do not need cooling?

From undoc.txt:

Quote:
If you are running on a laptop or in a hot room and you want to slow the
program down to reduce heat, then you can add this line to prime.txt:
Throttle=n
where n is the percentage of time the program should run. For example,
Throttle=40 means the program will run 40% and be idle 60% of the time.

You can also add MaxExponents=0 to prime.txt, when worktodo.txt is empty, it won't get more work.
