One of the old laptops I have running WUs seems to have an issue with a loose/broken/faulty power cord socket. Basically, move the machine and it loses power. It's working at the moment and I'm going to try to get these WUs finished before fixing or retiring the machine. But, if it becomes necessary, is there a way to check WUs back in before they run?

You can either let them time out, or abandon them, which ever you decide to do first set "no new tasks" for each project you are active on using that errant laptop otherwise more tasks will be delivered.
Hope you get the power cord sorted soon.

"No new tasks" has already been set. Going to experiment on the wobbly power port socket with electrical tape this weekend.
