BOINC seems to have a problem shutting down when Apple computer Automated shut down process is scheduled to turn the computer off.

I have BOINC/SETI@HOME loaded on three Apple computers with OS 10.4 on one, 10.5 on another, and 10.6 on still another. BOINC stops any auto shut down on the computers loaded with 10.5 & 10.6.

Can the BOINC Managers fix this?

Also, with three computers doing SETI@home in my name but with three different credits. can these be combined?

Can't help you with the shutdown, but you really ought to switch to the optimized applications for SETI. You'll double your RAC. You can download from here:
