Hi,

Does anyone know why I cannot setup my preferences to run tasks while computer is Idle? Even if i select Always run and not use preferences, computation stops 2 and half minutes later stating no recent user activity.

That probably has to do with the following preference setting:

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+

Make sure that your setting is "---" and not "2.5".

Gruß,
Gundolf

It does. It's in the computing preferences (here on the web site, under your account).
