stupid q- can I disconnect the monitor during the wipe?

It looks like it will be hours and I borrowed a monitor. Can I disconnect the monitor from the computer I am erasing without the program stopping?

I can reconnect it in a few hours to continue to monitor the progress of the complete hard disk erase.

If it matters, am erasing an old Compaq PC running win 95 using I think the latest dban from a cd.
Disconnecting the monitor will have no effect on DBAN.

You could always select a quicker wipe pattern if time is critical.
