Hello everybody! Sorry my english is not so good. I've got a problem. Why does seti@home stops every time i leave my pc? in the message board I can read: "suspending computation - no recent user activity." This is also shown in the screensaver - suspending computation. I want to work seti@home all the time - even when i'm not at my pc! thanks

greets alex

Go to Seti computing preferences and make sure that "Suspend work if no mouse/keyboard activity in last xx minutes" is set to 0.0 or "---"

If it shows anything else, that means that after that time has passed BOINC will stop all work in progress and be ready for hibernation mode.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that in many ways, you can be considered an alien conspiracy!
