You can pause it when it's done with its chore. ;]

Why not run 24/7, if I may ask?

If you were on Linux, I would suggest creating a script. Although, I have yet to create any scripts so I couldn't tell you how to do it. :roll:

I've got my F@H client running on Slackware as a process. I edited the rc.local file to boot slackware before it even boots the GUI. The neat thing is all I have to do to check on it's progress is open the FAHlog.txt file, and it tells me how it's doing.

Damn hard to kill it though, though I haven't tried yet. I do have quite a lot of work done on the Windows client that I would like to finish using Wine. I would of course have to kill F@H first. :?

This really is the correct answer. FAH will give way to any other process on your system, since it runs at low priority all the time.

I've never had issues with games or anything else being interfered with by FAH.

Agreed. I'd also like to know what is bugging you about it running. It takes over when it needs too. Instead of it showing "Idle Process" running at 99, you get F@H to make your PC earn it's keep...

I also have never had a problem running it all the time. It drops off nicely when I demand work to be done.

Oh! Well then...

You can install this pretty silently. What you could do is use something like reshacker and change the program's flower icon to something like logitech's icon and place a shortcut in the startup folder with a name like "logitech manager". Then, go into properties and don't allow it to show in the taskbar. By those two, the only real way he'll see it is by looking at his processes, where it'll be very noticable.

Other than disguising it, I'm short of ideas. I know how to start it up, but I don't know how to shut it down.

Agreed. Install it and change the icon/name in the startup folder, then don't allow it to show in the taskbar. Chances are, he won't notice it.

Not that I'm condoning installing this on someone's computer without permission or anything.

I have. But then, this was at work.
