Hi, I wish to get cpu w/u all the time but need to switch off getting gpu w/u's from time to time.  Is it possible to switch off the gpu wu's per project.  In other words can I suspend getting gpu w/u from this project and still get them from other projects.  Where must be an option somewhere but I cannot find it.

 

Thanks

Hi!

Check what is the current 'Location' for that computer at the host page (click that computer at https://einsteinathome.org/account/dashboard ).

Then go to https://einsteinathome.org/account/prefs/project and choose that same location on the 'Preference set'. There are those 'Use xxxxx GPU' options that you can set either to Yes or No. Remember to scroll down and SAVE CHANGES.

If you use Boinc Manager click 'Update' for Einstein. Then it will read those new settings from the server. You can visit different project pages and make the settings in similar way.

Thanks Richie.  All sorted. 

Thanks Richie.  All sorted.  The gpu w/u's tend to run this I5 Dell laptop a bit hot.  Sometimes its best not to process any.

Thanks
