I just switched over to the boinc client after using S@H for a while. Right now, I\'m using CPDN and S@H. The problem is that my computer was constantly freezing, so I set it to only run when my computer was idle. I updated my client, and now it\'s suspended, even when it\'s idle.

Another thing to check, do you have "run based on preferences" checked in the GUI?

&gt; check the idle duration time in preferences
&gt;
&gt;

I have the same problem -- I've tried to have BOINC only run after I've not used the computer myself for either 1 or 3 minuts. neither setting worked. Would you mind posting some specific settings that should allow the project to be suspended while I'm "manually" using the machine?

Thanks,

There is a known bug that if you have any other venue specific preferences active, this feature will not work. Delete the other preference settings, (work, home, etc...) and only use the default. Update the project from the GUI, and it should function properly.
