    • NEW FEATURE - auto shedules - you can now set automatical sleeping for your rigs. Please make sure that your rigs are properly working with sleep feature (test it on manual sleep first). If you for example have unprofitable electricity cost during rush hour, you can tell your rigs to sleep automatically during that time. Creating and assigning rigs to shedules works the same way as group configs and group oc. Please make sure to set your timezone correctly as this is important :D
