I have this part set like this:

Computer is connected to the Internet about every
Leave blank or 0 if always connected.
BOINC will try to maintain at least this much work. 3 days

Maintain enough work for an additional 10 days


But I'm not getting enough stuff for my computer to have work units to work on during the Tuesday to Friday outages.

Did you check your local preferences? They override the online ones.

Because you set the project to No new tasks.

BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Projects tab->Select Seti.
On the left you'll see a "Allow new tasks" button. Click it. The button will change to No new tasks.

The button shows the option, not the state it is in.
