Default Polite way to stop folding some WUs?

Hi. What's a polite way to stop folding some WUs? I want to flip from 4 regular instances to the SMP client, but I don't want to lose work. Is there some way to tell those clients to stop when done?

I'm running 4x regular console clients right now.

If you restart each instance with the -oneunit flag, it will finish the WU it's working on and not get any more.

Cheers! Got those command lines added, so hopefully by tomorrow morning I'll be folding SMP!

Hehe.. I just looked up the requirements for bigadv.

Additionally some SMP WUs time out after a couple of days.

All units have deadlines. However, that is not a "polite" way to stop folding them, since you end up wasting work and time.
