For some reason my BOINC program wont suspend when I\'m using my computer even though I set that option in my preferences. I have to always go in and manually suspend it. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Nevermind.... I just found the same question in this forum and I was able to fix it. For some reason I had \"I want to customize.....\" checked off.

I have the same problem. I don\'t find \"I want to customize.....\" anywhere. Where does I find that setting?

Make sure you have \'Run According to Preferences\' selected on your Boinc Manager (rather than \'Run Always\'). If that doesn\'t solve the problem, I think you can find the checkbox in question on the Advanced / Preferences dialogue in the Boinc Manager.
