Topic 192705

I've downloaded the newest version of BOINC (5.8.16.) and it works fine but even if I use the computer.
Where the hell can I set it not to work paralelly with me? Only when I'm idle?

Please help me, I'm getting pissed off :)

Asking it nicely is also an option.
But heck, why should we for a first post?

Anyway, go:
* to your account
* View your preferences
* Scroll down to Edit your preferences

Make sure that these are set to NO
- Do work while computer is running on batteries? (if you have a laptop)
- Do work while computer is in use?

Make sure you set an amount of minutes before your computer is allowed to go idle:
- Do work only after computer is idle for (x amount of) minutes

Also make sure that you didn't set two different times at
- Do work only between the hours of x hours and y hours. If x and y are the same hour, it gets ignored.

Checked all that? Set all?

Scroll down and press Update Preferences
You go to a new screen that says at the top, in red:
Your preferences have been updated. Client-related preferences will take effect when your computer communicates with Einstein@Home or you issue the "Update" command from the BOINC client.

So, open BOINC Manager.
Go to your Projects tab.
Press Einstein@Home once.
Press Update once.
Go to your Messages tab.
You should see a message that your preferences have been updated.

If that still doesn't help, post back. And please use a little patience. We're all volunteers here helping others out.
