Folding @ home on Mac Book Pro


I have been interested in distributed computing projects for a while.  I have decided to try Folding@Home.  One of this projects goals is to help understand the process of protein folding.


When I installed the Mac OS X client on my Mac Book Pro, everything worked correctly.  That is until I disconnected from AC power.  When I did that, the battery was being drained pretty quickly.


The Folding@Home client should have an option that would either pause or slow down processing when the laptop goes into portable mode.
