Hey,

I can't find this anywhere...

I will not be using my laptop for a little over 2 weeks at the beginning of May and would like to know how to get SETI@Home to stop downloading data before then so I don't lose the credit for completing the work?

Thanks in advance

Anne

Before you shut down the computer for the holidays, make sure that all uploaded tasks are reported. BOINC does that usually on its own, but without downloading new tasks, it may last up to 24 hours after uploading before it starts reporting.
