I wanted to ask if there is a way to abort a WU leaving some usefull data for the project or is everything lost when I abort?
I have to shut down my computer for a while so it won't make the deadline.

Abort WU


you are right. If you abord a task, the same task will get send to an other computer. You have to run it to 100% to get the credit and the results.
It will just show up as aborded with some cpu-time but still have to be send to an onther pc.
I did it just to show you. I didn't had a wingman jet, so nobody has to wait for there credit.http://einsteinathome.org/workunit/122882060

You should set the project to

You should set the project to "no new tasks" (or "no more work" or whatever), then abort the tasks, then "update" the project for a final time to let the server know that you aborted these.

Otherwise the tasks will just be "lost" and only be resent after the deadline.
