    theres a lot of other projects you can be part of as well - like studying global warming, or analysing proteins to help treat disease and others. If you leave your computer on all the time and it spends a lot of time doing nothing (eg at work) might as well get it to do something while its just sitting there... Click here to enlarge

    i leave my computer on 24/7 anyway, so no big deal.
    im sure the 800w psu doesnt use that much Click here to enlarge

    and as pete said, he has it on his work computers, which are on all of the time.

    also its not like we are forcing ppl to use it.
    its something i use, and wanted to know if anyone else used it.

    I was talking about the difference between a cpu idling, 0-2W, and a cpu going flat stick, which these days is 100W+. If you have the video card working too... that can be another 100W+ that I didn't factor in. Click here to enlarge

    Not that major, but it certainly adds up!
