Default Stop receiving new tasks

I am planning to move Prime95 to a new PC, so I would like to let the program finish the current tasks and not receive new ones.

How can I do that?

Add NoMoreWork=1 to prime.txt

Make sure you stop and shut down Prime95 first, then restart it.

Or just move the entire folder to the new PC and resume crunching...
