If you haven't previously done so, you can link your old SETI@Home "Classic" account with your newer BOINC-SETI account (only one Classic account can be linked to one BOINC-SETI account).

The instructions for doing so are listed on the front page, which links to this page. Make sure to select the last option "If you're already using BOINC" to make sure they get linked to the account you're using here. All you need is the email address you used for your SETI Classic account.


Make sure BOINC is listed in the drop-down box in your list of available screen savers. BOINC will automatically load the screen saver for whatever science app is processing. Note that not all science projects have screen savers, and neither do GPU applications.

BTW, BOINC is my screensaver, but it just shows "computing suspended" instead of displaying the previous "activity" graphic.

Then we need to find out why its suspended. Do you have processing enabled while you work, or does it wait until you don't move the mouse or type on the keyboard after X minutes?

Do you have tasks downloaded, or is BOINC still trying to get more tasks?

It is supposed to process after 15 minute of use. But it never seems to kick in.
BOINC usually transfers information on it's own.
