I would like to get more work units, for example I get two units on a Friday it takes two days to run them. I then I have sit and wait for five days till the servers are back on line to get more work. To me this is not an efficient use of my computer time. How do I go about getting a weeks worth of work at a time?

Go to your Computing preferences and set "Maintain enough work for an additional" to a convenient value.

Do bear in mind that a better way to ensure your resources have work to do is to join a backup project for when SETI is down.
