It means that you put a value in the preference "Suspend work if no mouse/keyboard activity in last X minutes" in your computing preferences.

This preference is only used if you allow your system to go into hibernation after a while. The preference will stop BOINC to allow the system to go into (the OS defined) hibernation state correctly, without possibility that all your tasks crash when the system comes back out of hibernation.

If you do not want to use the preference, edit the preferences, change its value to 0 (zero) or --- and save the changes. The next time BOINC contacts the project, it'll use these preferences automatically.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists say that they believe in them... Why don't you?
