I've reset the computing hours to be between 18:00 and 8:00, then clicked on Update. But Astropulse continues to run all the time. I've even tried rebooting the machine.

To make sure you're using the web-preferences, do this:
Open BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Advanced->Preferences->Clear.

Those local preferences will be saved when you just look at them and click OK to go out. They will override the web-preferences!

Also make certain that you have "run based on preferences" instead of "run always" in the advanced view -> Activity menu.
