Hi,
I just attached my new desktop to Einstein, I think it might have grabbed a good chunk of work to do. I'm going to disable CPU tasks in the Einstein@home preferences on the website. I can do it later, but I am interested if I can turn that off now, and just let the existing CPU tasks finish.

For E@H you could set 'no new tasks' ( in the BOINC client ) and that will have the effect you're after.

Cheers, Mike.

Yes, you can. That setting only disables downloading of new tasks, already downloaded ones will be processed as usual.
