well i hate to say this but i have to shut down here in another month. i am leaving the country for a few months and i can't find anyone to keep them going. Taking them with me is not a option. I haven't given up hope yet but the list is getting shorter of poeple to ask. Hope fully i can finish the race before i shut down.

While you are gone you can always set your puters to auto reboot on power loss if your bios supports this and monitor them using VNC if you will have internet connection. You can also set up reboot schedules for daily reboots.

I know its kind of a PITA to worry about computers while gone. Seems like the only time the power goes out is when I'm away for work for a week.

well, the 3 problems I have had with PC running outside of my direct control were:
a/ forgetting to start seti before leaving home (you know, just rebooting fresh before you close the door to be extra safe and you don't log into the machine, stupid, isn't it ...)
b/ heat => computer just stops
c/ network problem ADSL connection being reset by ISP, IP address not reconfigured by router => no connection

Only solution: extra large fan on open case when I travel away
and large setidriver cache , enoiugh to process the amount of day I am away.
