I didn`t find a thread which gave my an answer to my question.
Are there any checkpoints in the WUs? What will happen whenn shutting down the PC. Will the WU starts from the beginning or at the last checkpoint.
I dont trust me to shut down my pc after more than 10 hours computation time.

Did you notice the menu entry: Known Problems?

Not yet implemented features:

Another aspect -- I\'ve never seen such a large negative longterm debt, twice what CPDN has accumulated. Once my two wu\'s finish it may be next year before BOINC requests another, unless I intervene.

That is no problem for me.

On my boxes I have quite a high longterm debit.
I think it is due to the fact the project is there for (when did I join?) and never got some work.

Now at least one computer (the one with more than 515MB ram) gets work.
=> it is decreasing a little bit.
BTW: CPDN has here a even higher negative longterm..
