TOU Graceful Shutdown
« on: July 03, 2021, 09:54:13 pm »
Time-Of-Use electric metering saves much money over the year but during the summer peak rates jump up 8.5x. Also record breaking heat waves are plaquing us.
I'd love to see the Extra/BOINC Preferences/Processor/Day-of-the-week-override expanded to issue a Suspend at Checkpoint command followed by a Shutdown computer command after all BOINC tasks have halted. TIA.

Not sure if you can automate everything...
The wisest thing is set the project to not allow new work and delete all the tasks that are ready to start.
That way taks can be given to someone else, I started my computer again as the temps went below 70F....
