Even though seti is not suspended when the screen saver comes on it says seti is currently suspended. I've look at everything I can look at to reset or adjust. Completely removed seti included in doc and setting and reloaded projects doesn't make any difference. Graphics will not run will run if I set to always run and show graphics that display will show graphics.

What are your settings for processing while computer is in use? The delay before processing starts? A delay before processing stops?

Set a time difference of 1 minute between allowing BOINC to do work and when the screen saver starts up.

Else, please state which version of BOINC you're using (BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Help->About BOINC Manager) and what your actual preferences settings are.

You can always post the contents of your global_prefs.xml file (which can be found in your BOINC data directory, whose location can be found when BOINC starts up, Messages tab). If you use the local preferences, post the contents of the global_prefs_override.xml file as well.

It runs if you set to Run always? If so, then it sounds like you have a preference issue that is preventing it from running.

Do you allow work while you're using the PC, or do you have it suspend SETI when you're using the PC?

I think it's the first time I went to pref using the web site settings. What I found was the time was set for five minutes to start and five minutes to stop. In the setting set for the if the mouse or key board are no used to 100000000000000000 it works now. What this pref is for I have no idea.

You should set it to 0 (zero).

What this pref is for I have no idea.

Quote from "Computing preferences", emphasis by me:
Suspend work if no mouse/keyboard activity in last --- minutes
(Needed to enter low-power mode on some computers)
Enforced by version 5.10.14+

Then why set it? Do you also press random buttons when you don't know what they do? How about researching the preferences before randomly clicking them?

Suspend work if no mouse/keyboard activity in last X Minutes

Allows for the processing to stop when input and navigation is ceased and facilitates for a host to enter sleep/standby/hibernation mode as can be defined in Operating Systems and hardware BIOS.

The value 0.0 equals Never.
