I have my project sharing set at 55%CPDN, 35%LHC and 15%SAH and have the preference "Leave applications in memory while preempted?" set to yes for all projects (well LHC doesn't list it). When the projects were preempted the application was left in memory, which is what I wanted. However, something has happened and now all the projects quit when they are preempted. I have doubled checked the prefs on all projects and the "Leave applications in memory while preempted?" pref is still set to yes. I first saw this after a benchmark was automatically performed, but nothing I have done seems to fix the problem. This machine is a 2.2GHzP4M with 512MB ram running XP SP1.

This as now propagated to another machine which has not done a benchmark recently. This machine is a 2.0GHzP4 with 1GB ram running W2k.

AS I am running CPDN I can loose upto 5 minutes of crunching every preempt (every hour), which is when the previous checkpoint was made.

Any comments?

Doh forget it....I had reattached to pirates@home and thought I had checked all the preferences over there...but alas I missed my work preferences and they were still set to 'no'....bugger I hate that! So much for that confusion....I really don't like the way the prefs propagate across all BOINC projects.
