If you know things take time, you can nohup your processes, this way 
they keep on running after logout. Another very nice tool is "screen". 
It gives you virtual terminals inside your terminal emulator. In 
addition, you can detach it and attach to it at will. Your commands 
continue to run and their output is still on your screen when you 
re-attach. Never do admin jobs without it ;-)
