Once I have recieved the handshake from my target network is there any reason to stay while I run the dictionary? Like say I went to my friends house to test his security and I aquire my hanshake can I go home while running the dictionary or do I have to stay put? Thanks

Short Answer: Once you have the handshake you can leave.

Once you have the 4-way handshake, the cracking process for WPA/WPA2 attacks is entirely offline. Routers simply can't handle the brute-forcing you're about to inflict upon that handshake. The offline brute-force is undetectable since its on your machine and not interfering with the router or its connected clients, and you have all the time in the world to crack it. Provided the password doesn't change during that time.. That would make your handshake worthless, and you'd have to get a new one.

Friendly reminder: Make sure you have your friend's permission to test his security ^-^
