      Think I might have to just start it up manually and see how it goes
      Strange you mention this Mono. I get exactly the same symptoms on my HP system running Intel Dual Core processor running at 3 gig and with 2 Gig RAM. System boots normally then monitor goes to sleep and everything locks up. Taken it out of my Startup script and just run it manually now - all OK.

      Anyone got any ideas ??

        The text only no-nonsense version is very easy to setup and has nothing to do with your screensaver either. It just sits in the background folding away, and uses less memory than the graphical version (making it faster)
        Unfortunately it can't make your pc any cooler if you set it at 100%, so if you're having problems with stability, it might be worth getting the side or top off your case and vacuuming the dust off the heatsinks and fans.

            After only 5 days

            After only 5 days the e-goat folding team are 16178 of 48171

            So far 3 members of the team have completed 5 work units

            At this rate and with a little more support we could get e-goat up there with the major players. So come on guys its free and I personally am seeing no reduction in system performnance.

              Think I'll have to look into that one, cos my GPU has always had certain "issues" when i comes to certain graphics apps.

                  I'll be giving it a go as soon as I UN SP2 my machine, thanks Microcrap. it is locked in an explorer.exe crash and restart cycle. Gotta wipe it and start again.

                  It is, I firmly believe, completely impossible to be both equal AND diverse!

                    Well I recommend the No-Nonsense version....

                    After having a couple of problems with it crashing (My video card is just not what it used to be) it's slowly number crunching without drawing it all out. Works for me!!

                      I had something similar(ish).

                      Tried the GUI version, everything was fine until I tried to run 3DMark05 just to see how it would affect framerates. Wouldn't run, some D3D.dll not found b0ll0x.

                      Quick hunt through the wiki and FAQ shows that it doesn't allow any other OpenGL sessions

                      No-Nonsense client works a treat. If you don't want the window sitting in your taskbar while it runs then set it to run as a service. The only problem is that it then disappears completely, so, if like me you want to know how your progress is, you can dowload a 3rd party add-in.

                      I recommend FoldingFromTray. It's free and easy to use. Download it from here and then just drop it into your Folding@Home folder. When you run it, it opens a window with progress info and easy access to the log file. You can download a small piccy of your protein if you want too.

                      It closes to the System Tray if want quick access or you can exit completely. For those of you running multiple sessions on dual/quad core processors, you can select which session you want to view info from too.

                        If you look in the folder where you've initially placed the no-nonsense version, it should have created 2 text documents, unitinfo and FAHlog.
                        Unitinfo tells you how your current work unit is coming along and FAHlog tells you everything else you need to know, from the size of the unit to how long it takes each step to complete.
                        If you add a shortcut to them on the desktop you don't have to worry about getting to the folder whenever you want know how your unit is going, and again it saves having extra stuff cluttering up your system tray.

                            I've done it on several occasions and never had any adverse effects. Only lower temps and higher overclocks. I can understand your concern with static but it is also recommended that people wear a grounding strap when handling components and I've never seen that happen.

                              Ok, I'm gonna try again when I get back from det.

                              Finished a Work Unit, but it crashed just before upload. Opened it up again, and it told me it was starting number 2.

                              Sweet I thought, until it bloody crashed! File I/O error....

                              Look on the site, my WU never made it to Standford either!

                              bugger!
