1. Go to 'Your account' (from the menu on the left) and select 'View or edit general preferences'.

2. Select 'Edit preferences'.

3. Change 'Do work while computer is in use'.

4. Click on 'Update preferences'.

&gt; 1. Go to 'Your account' (from the menu on the left) and select 'View or edit
&gt; general preferences'.
&gt;
&gt; 2. Select 'Edit preferences'.
&gt;
&gt; 3. Change 'Do work while computer is in use'.
&gt;
&gt; 4. Click on 'Update preferences'.

That option doesn't work reliably (if at all), Andrew. There's a problem with the BOINC activity detection that means project continue running. The active time period option works fine, so it's better to use that for now. Suspending BOINC works too, but that means you need to remember to resume it every time you stop working.
