I downloaded bionc and deleted the classic version...got a work unit and its been over 24 hrs, and it keeps saying its got an hour left...it only seems to work when I'm actually using the computer. I left it running last night when I went to work and its in exactly the same place it was when I left :/

How are your settings in the "general preferences" especially in "Do work while computer is in use" and in "Do work only between the hours"?
Did you make a change in these? And if you did, did you use the "Update" function in the "Projects" tab?

Greetings from Belgium.

Some WUs seem to halt processing. A stop and restart of BOINC usually solves the problem.
