newbie question

BOINC will restart after a reboot, if you told the installer to start Boinc with Windows startup.

BOINC doesn't like sleep/hibernate. It will try to write to disk quite regularly (multiple times a second), so before you let your Windows go to sleep/hibernate, make sure you exit BOINC.

You can always exit BOINC by hand (Boinc Manager, File->Exit) and then later restart it by hand (Start->Programs->BOINC->Shortcut to Boinc Manager).

Credits are a way for the project to pay you back for the work your computer is doing.
They cannot be used for anything (as of yet), other than to brag with and showing off how good your computer is.
