I am running some computation on my Linux box and can't really afford to run it on battery while I drive home. It requires a network connection and currently I am running this stuff on a wireless connection. After reaching home, I need to hook up an ethernet cable to get the Internet.
I've never done this before but I want to "resume" the computation after reaching home. For that, I am thinking that I should suspend the eclipse program (which apparently I did not start from a terminal, so how would I suspend it?), put the system into standby. Then get the system out of standby, connect the ethernet cable, get a new IP address, then resume eclipse. I am assuming it will work. Anyone has a better approach?
