also, does it use much bandwidth?
Doesn't seem like it needs any special shut down process. Probably better when it exits cleanly, as opposed to being killed. Not a big deal, so your shutdown command should be no problem.

It only uses bandwidth to upload a completed WU or download a new one, so it rarely uses any at all (WUs, depending on their sizes, can take a long time to finish). It's more of a CPU usage thing. You don't even have to be always online for it to actually process stuff.
