Question.

 

Can I pause folding to reboot my PC (for Windows update) and resume without loosing active work units?

 

I think I have lost a couple previously but don't remember If I paused work before boot...

You should not lose any work even from a power failure other then the period of time since the last checkpoint (every 15 minutes by default, but can vary by project). I have had to power cycle stuck rigs and I've only ever lost work when I did something stupid like forgot to reconnect the PCIe power on a GPU and had the system wake up and decide that slot has been removed.
