I've set my computer here at work to crunch workunits only during off-hours, since these PCs base their fan speed on CPU tempurature and can get quite noisy at full utilization. I've created a seperate profile for Work in my account, and assigned the computer in question to it, and issued on update from the client, but it's still defaulting to the home profile.

school

just before the last line which should be

Once you have saved the changes, restart BOINC and you will see it now uses the alternate prefs. This change will remain even after your projects contact the server.
