One thing I would like to see, especially if they release a GPU version of Astropulse, is the ability to select which application are priority for each GPU and CPU available on a per-computer basis. The selections could be made either locally or via the web site.

Another thing I'd like to see is a "suspend/resume" selection in the menu you get when you right-click the BOINC icon in the system tray. This would give me a way to quickly suspend (or resume if it's suspended) computaton if I need to without having to load the manager, select the activity menu and click suspend. There are times when I need to do this for one reason or another, and the snooze function isn't really what I need (it's a fixed timer).

That would be too hard to implement on a per-computer basis. You can always group computers into venues and set different preferences by venue.

The snooze button used to be a "suspend" feature, then people complained that they were forgetting to "resume" their computers and requested a timer on the snooze option.
