Windows 7: Recording

If I set WMC to record a show or series and then shut WMC down to either play a game, surf online or turn the computer off, will the show or series in progress continue to record?

Not if you turn it off. When a recording is ongoing, a red ball should appear in the tray.

FYI, while all PC setups do not work well with sleep or hibernate, you can set WMC to wake your PC to make a PC is always on...the cost for elec is not too much for me and I prefer not to start and stop electronics too much. With Windows 7 my CPU (the power hog in most systems) is literally at 0% when I am not using it anway and I do turn off my monitor. Plus, I use it all the time It's on at night for WMC optimization tasks, backups, nightly AV Scans, updates, scheduled tasks such as disk defrag...that works well for me.
