I only want it to not run when I'm not connected to schools network and to run when I decide to connect. I am a commuter, so on average I only need it to run for about an hour a day at most.
No, I would not. And for that reason, I would never put certain computers onto their network. If I were you I would buy a netbook and use that for school.
For work, I can install our VPN software and such on my home computer...however that means I get a bunch of checkpoint garbage that I don't want installed. For that reason, i don't install it. Instead, I just go grab my work laptop and use that instead....it's got all that stuff on it already for being on our LAN. Is it convenient...not really....but then again I don't want that garbage on my personal computer so I don't connect it.
