Hey!
I would like to know, what rights do you have on your computer? Do you have rights to save files, download files? IF yes you can download some simple dos games which you can keep running when you don't use your computer or when your computer is idle...! Try to create a batch program in an infinite loop and let it run all the time... All the best...!

Hey!
Well here is an example progarm. Open notepad and paste the following code in in :

Code:
@echo OFF
:LOOP
Echo "Keepin the computer Busy...! :P "
goto LOOP
Now save the file as LOOP.bat You can give any filename but the extension ".bat is important. Just double click on the file to run it. Now to close this program just press "ctrl+c" It will say "Terminate batch job (Y/N)?" Press Y and press Enter.
Now you are keeping your computer busy....!
