What Does Your PC Do When You Sleep?

My processor sits idle these days as I'm running a program that utilizes my GPU to try and brute force crack 74 bit encryption

I'm using an ATI Radeon 3870 btw...Screenshot for those curious...

While I'm sleeping, my PC works on solving the problems with teleportation. Is that a better use for technology?

When I sleep my laptop dreams of what it would feel like to hack a mac book (running OS X of course). :| I swear this thing has a mind of its own!

Kinda surprised more people aren't into distributed computing projects...Especially people who leave their PC on 24/7 like I do

Distributed computing projects use lots of CPU cycles and this means heat.......heat is bad.
