Yes - you can change it to 0 (zero) to allow computation to be done all the time.

Click ACCOUNT (here - at top-right)
Click Computing preferences
Click Edit preferences (at bottom of page)

Change "Suspend work if CPU usage is above" to 0 (zero)
Click button [Update preferences] (at bottom of page)

In BOINC Manager
in Projects tab
select SETI@home
click Update button (at the left)

I HAVE ALREADY INCREASED THE CPU UP TO 30% AND THAT SEEMS TO HAVE DONE THE TRICK BUT IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN I WILL PUT IT TO O.

Yes, just install BOINC on it and in the Attach to wizard fill in Seti->Yes, existing user with same email address and password as used on your account.

I am also getting the message that work is suspended because CPU usage is too high or because processor usage is to high.

I've never had this problem in the years I've been crunching for SETI.

Is this some new bug in the system?

Right before this started happening, I had just downloaded the new BOINC version: 6.10.43.

Could this have something to do with it?

It's not a bug, it's a new computing preference: "Suspend work if CPU usage is above 25%". Set it to 0 to disable it.

See this FAQ on the subject.
