Hey I have a question re: Win7.  Is it possible to put my machine into sleep mode at a certain time and then later have it auto-wake and start mining again?  If so, what apps do I need to do this?  Thanks in advance!

It would be significantly easier to simply kill & restart your miner process using task scheduler. It won't save you *quite* as much energy/heat as fully hibernating, but the difference between an idle computer and a mining computer IS pretty substantial.

Just make a couple batch files, one containing the command you use to start your miner, the other containing something like:

Code:
taskkill /f /im:poclbm.exe /t

Replacing poclbm.exe with the actual filename of your miner of course.

Cool, thanks!  What would I use to launch those batch files at XX:XX hours?

Use task scheduler to run something like shutdown /h /t 60 to hibernate your PC and a BIOS wake on alarm to wake it back up.
