    I want to fold, but the way I have my laptop set up, it's in a drawer with decent but not great ventilation, and its plugged into a dock - if I run the folding app on it 24/7, and I gonna burt it out?

    It's a 1ghz tibook

    thanks

    I would not put a computer in a drawer for anything because the ventilation is poor, as the space is confined.

    I don't really suggest folding with laptop computers, even when ventilation is good as most laptop computers get extraordinarily hot.

    By the way, you should have started this thread under Distributed Computing.
