Folding with Laptop

I want to run F@H on an HP A64Turion 2.2GHz, 1 gig of ram. I will leave it
plugged in an running most of the time untill my other rig is done. I know
that laptops,as a rule, use power saving features that may cause F@H to
have issues. are there any settings I should cahnge/use while folding?

Ron

Change your power settings that it doesn't power down when you shut the lid or leave it idle for a certain period of time.

Should be in your Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options. On the 'Power Schemes' tab, Set 'System Standby' to 'Never' under the "When Computer is Plugged In' column. Now switch to the 'Advanced' tab, and set "When I close the lid of my portable computer" to 'Do Nothing'.

That should cover it, I think.

F@H will not run on my laptop without the mains power plugged in, power schem is set to "always on" for all options and "do nothing" for lid closing.
When I unplug the power lead it pauses F@H.

My only dual core rig is my Playstation Portable

The Presler at work is tempting me greatly though.

I've had issues in the past with running CPU heavy tasks on laptops. On one machine, the system just generally warmed up too much after 24-48 hours of heavy use and would tend to fall over. The other machine had issues with the heat generated by the hard disk, and the hard disk would get too warm (>50C) and stop working correctly.

I've got three laptops in my office, and my wife's laptop at home, all running folding 24/7, and they've not had any problems. Two of the laptops are 1 GHz Pentium IIIs (Asus), the other two are 1.7 GHz P-Ms (one is a Dell, the other is an Asus).

Depends on the climate and environment i suppose, i keep my computer in a room which has an ambient temperature of about 18c (warm) but nothing ever goes wrong. Laptops are hard to keep cold due to the closeness of the components and lack of space for extra fans etc.
