Topic 188166

I have my program set to run even while Im working but it has stopped doing that. It will only run while its idle. Im wondering if somehow I set the preferences wrong on the website and switched it back and it hasnt updated it yet,or if its my pc doing this to conserve resources. Any ideas?

I keep reading posts about going to the bionic program on our pc's and setting preferences there...I cant do any of that. It just shows me the basic facts. If I want to change anything I have to go to the account page on the web..Am I missing something here?

Hello,
I don't know what your prob is precise, so i answer one possibility with a link to a thread where it's described.

Next one:
Set your General Preferences in the item 'Do work while computer is in use?' to yes.

Next one (in case this doesn't work):
Go to the Boinc-GUI and set the first menu to 'run always'. (should be so, if former 'next one' was proper set, but I will never bet on it ;)

BTW:
A good manual for Boinc is Paul D. Bucks BOINC Powered Projects Documentation and his FAQ therein.

Then be sure to do 'update preferences' from your BOINC client!
