Have you upgraded to the latest version of the BOINC client? Perhaps there's an issue with that.

I've never had a problem suspending network. If BOINC's mid-download, it terminates and waits and any other pending downloads just sit there too.

Might be worth firewalling BOINC when you're playing to avoid losing your precious bandwidth.

Not come across any problems with this myself, so can't help further ... sorry!

Cheers,

Steve.

I wonder if SETI@Home has considered using BITS.

I have been having the same problem for a while now. I suspend network activity, then about 2 seconds later it says "Resuming network activity", and goes along its merry way.

The menu entry still has the little dot by "Network Activity Suspended", but it is wrong.

I am currently on 5.10.13 under Windows XP.

I Metath is using Chrunch3r's 6.1.0 could that be causing the problem?
