Hello! I am interesting in letting BOINC/seti@home run overnight when the computer is not in use and not being backed up. As far as I can tell, this is not happening right now. Does anyone know how to get
BOINC manager (or equivalent) to run un-attended, when no-one is logged in? Would a cron job do the trick? Thank you.

BOINC 6.12.35 (Power PC)
wxWidgets version 2.8.10
