1) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : Repeated "task postponed" messages (Message 53526)

I've had a fair number of those too, I think- but this one happens when the task is already completely downloaded (and even finished enough to have sent its first progress-"trickle")... which is the odd bit to me...
(... I think I probably sound ungrateful to the admins and programmers etc., but I'm not. That's not what I mean. I like this project, and hope to continue being a part of it for some years if possible and need be :) :) )
Anyhow- thanks!!!

Running BOINC 7.6.22.
I'm not sure what causes these- low swap space/hard drive?, etc.?, other trouble? but after reaching first "trickle", my two hadam3p_anz(etc) processes on my (2007 desktop iMac, running OS 10.11.3) will occasionally briefly work recently, but more often will tell me that they're postponing for 10 minutes (600 seconds)- and then after 10 minutes will tell me that they're postponing for 600 seconds again.

It didn't take me long to give in to the temptation of downloading some Collatz Conjecture BOINC processes just so as to give my computer & BOINC something to -do- in the meanwhile- maybe that's another part of the problem too, sorry...- but whenever I suspend those, or most of them, and return control to Climate Prediction, it's almost immediate return to "postponed"... Any ideas why? At least, anyone else seeing this lately (I see that a search of these forums turns up nothing)? Thanks.
