One of the machines I am crunching with is a laptop, and I have my settings set up so that it will only crunch when not on batteries. This setting also disables internet access as well, and forces me to set BOINC to "Run Always" (or plug in the laptop) every time I wish to transmit a WU when I have a net connection, but no AC.
This is a minor inconvience, but seeing how downloading and uploading dosen't exactly suck battery life dry, why should it be disabled right along with crunching? Network connect on battery should either be a seperate preference, or not be disabled right along with the rest of the work.
