One thing about these ARP tasks is that they can be suspended/stopped/re-started endless times without having a fit and dying with a computation error.

Very endearing.

Another FYI, they recommend using "Keep no GPU in memory when Suspended" with ARP because they only write check points every 12.5% of the way through. On my Ryzen 7 systems that can up to an hour of work lost otherwise and even more on my other boxes.

But to your point about being able to restart them, yes, it is nice not having to wait five minutes before rebooting.
