Just a shot in the dark here, BUT, you think MAYBE a search of the THIN CLIENT section, might, just might, have an answer for you??

Posting in this section is like looking in the kitchen for the glasses you lost in the living room.....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thin_client

Some people with magicJacks use them for the mJ rather than their main computer, for a number of reasons, such as:
-very small power consumption
-mJ doesn't interfere with you working/gaming on main computer
-some people are worried that the mJ software contains spyware and may be able to track what you do on the computer it is installed on.
-mJ not affected by having to reboot/shutdown your main computer.
etc, etc

I use an old IBM Thinkpad notebook with a P3 processor and 192MB RAM for my mJ. It's not as energy efficient as a thin client, but better than a desktop running all the time. And I got it free since it was considered so old.

There is a whole forum here dedicated to thin clients with mJ.
