In the BOINC general config webpage there is an option to not have the client running when the computer is active. I assume it's monitoring the keyboard or mouse. This option however does not seem to work. I have updated the client after I made the change.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Did you check the change of your preferences? If the change in your preferences is OK, try once to exit the GUI and start it over again.

Thanks for the reply! The prefs look good on the website. I can see from the messages on the client that it is using my home prefs but when I restarted the client it just keeps running even though there is keyboard and mouse activity. Do you have this option working?

Thanks,

I also have the preferences for one of my computers set to only operate when the machine is not in use. It at first worked, several months ago in Beta testing, but it no longer works, and I've given up trying, I've tried everything I can think of including uninstalling and starting a new account off from scratch.
