1) Have been using MPCM for a couple of weeks now - great app. One of the machines I was monitoring had a disk crash. I've replaced it, but can't seem to get rid of that machine in my list of monitored machines ... please don't tell me I need to rebuild the machine, to uninstall the software to remove it from the list.

2) Even when I am not running the (Windows) Phone app, it seems to be polling the servers. Is this correct ? Is it continually running in the background ? Can this be disabled, or modified ? I don't want to be racking up data charges all the time ....

1) I tried this on my Linux machine, but can't find a "registered computers" section ...

2) I didn't make myself clear ... I am not worried about the internet usage of the MONITORED machine ... it's the internet usage of the mobile app (in my case on a Windows Phone) I am worried about. Even when I am not viewing PCMonitor, it seems to be connecting to the internet, as when I power on a monitored machine I get an alert. I was wondering if the is someway of disabling this background monitoring, as (data charges aside) it'll be an extra drain on the battery ...

1) In this case, you can also do it from the mobile app. Simply swipe the offline computer in iOS or long press in Android/WP7 - a remove option will appear.

2) The monitored machine is in permanent contact with the servers without doing too much traffic - this is part of the monitoring capabilities and cannot be disabled.

1) Great - done, thanks.

2) Sorry, there appears to be a little confusion, still. I am not concerned about the monitored machine. It is the MOBILE app, I am concerned about. It seems to me it is constantly connecting to the servers to update the machine status, which is a drain on my phone battery ... it would be nice to disable background connections, and only connect when the app is loaded up .....

The app is not connecting to any servers while it is in the background. We will check the app again and if this is happening it is a bug and it will be fixed in the next release.
