All my PCs are "HOME" pcs, I want some to run the client all the time on some and on the rest only when idle. The PCs I want to run all the time i set to in the file menu 'Run Always'. But after a few hours I have noticed that it has switched back to 'Run based on Pref'. Happens to more then one PC so it is not an error with the system. How can i fix this with out seting up pref for 'work', and 'school'. Cause I mean they are HOME computers not work or school so setting up those pref is out of the question. I repeat these are HOME pcs.

Try going to your account page, and editing your default preferences to run while user is active. Even if this is how it is set, save the changes. Now update the project. (Right click on the project name in the "projects" tab, and select "update".

See if that helps. :)

I have the same problem. As far as I can tell, Boinc basically forgets everything you tell it after a shutdown. It then tries to refresh it's preferences by connecting to the 'net. Setting your basic preferences may help.


(hopefully an .ini file editable by the user will be in the next version)
