What`s causing my screen to freeze up when the Astropulse graphic screen comes up. It has been doing this for several days now. It seems that when I leave the computer on 24/7 and go away for awhile the screen has jumped over to the graphics screen and frozen up. The only way to get out is to shut down and reboot the computer. Any ideas ?

I don't use the screensaver but I'll ask the question anyway.
What version of Boinc manager are you using? Astropulse graphics is known to have caused problems on V6 before V6.2.18

There is still a problem with 6.2.18. You might want to consider using the "blank" screen saver for a while. BOINC will continue with the computation even without the screen saver running.
