Default Need a way to finish exponent and have it automatically quit.

Maybe I'm just stupid, but I can't figure out how to get Prime95 to finish it's present exponent, THEN quit GIMPS.

Considering how much work has gone into this program, it would be a pretty crappy thing to not give someone a way to quit GIMPS after finishing their present work. I'm hoping it's just ignorance on my part.

See this thread. It won't quit GIMPS though.

From the Prime95 application:
Advanced -> Quit GIMPS -> Yes

Caution: When I did that during a TF that was _not_ assigned by PrimeNet (and I don't have the PrimeNet option checked), Prime95 immediately stopped processing and deleted all worktodo.ini entries.

It was ignorance on my part. For anyone that needs to know, if you're a member of GIMPS and you want to finish your assigned stuff before quitting the project, 'Quit GIMPS' is okay to click. It could be made more obvious though. After you click, you are given the option of quitting immediately, or finishing your assigned work.

Additionally, and I'm not sure about this, you might want to change your 'reserve this much work' to one day, then unreserve everything but what you're doing at that moment, THEN quit GIMPS. Maybe someone who's more experienced than me could chime in on this.
