I have both BOINC and the SETI@Home settings set to stop all tasks while the computer is in use, and the Skyrim executable set in the exclusive applications. Yet I sometimes run into a problem with one of my GPU work units claiming to be paused but actually still running, which murders my framerate if I'm trying to play Skyrim. The only way to get it to stop is to tell it to abort the task. Is there something I'm missing here?

Why abort?

Did you try:
- "Snooze GPU" (from the tray icon) (stops GPU computing for 1 hour)
- "Use GPU never" (from Activity menu) (stops GPU computing "forever" (until you re-enable it))
- Exit BOINC completely (Select "Stop running the science applications" in the Exit dialog or use "Shut down connected client" from Advanced menu before exiting BOINC Manager)

What happens is that it says under status "Suspended - computer is in use" but the progress bar is still advancing. It's only ever one task that does this, the other SETI@Home GPU task suspends properly. I suppose I could just shut down BOINC entirely, but then I'd have to remember to turn it back on again. Snoozing doesn't stop it either.
