In looking for info on the Einstein@Home screensaver, I found these items:

 

Information specific to the BOINC screensaver, but not relevant to Einstein@Home.

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/BOINC_screensaver

 

In the Einstein@Home website, info about the screensaver but no link.

https://einsteinathome.org/science/screensaver

 

Then I found this in the forums.

https://einsteinathome.org/content/einsteinhome-screensaver-2

 

So do I presume that the Einstein@Home screensaver is no more?

I just turned it on and it works AFAIK it is for the CPU, not GPU. now I'll turn it off and stop wasting crunching cycles.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with 'AFAIK'.  What does that mean?

Also, if I understand you correctly, the E@H screensaver does work, but it CPU cycles not GPU cycles?

You already have it. 

Select a computer, show running tasks, if you have a CPU task running highlight it. Engage "show graphics". the second choice down on the menu.
