This is my first post here, and looks to be the right place to post. Apologies if I'm wrong on that. Anyway, I was looking at what projects were being worked on, and noticed at 35 hours that work on Astropulse V6 6.01 was at 0.135%. It's at 53 hours now, and the amount of time remaining has increased. I can't recall exactly what it was at before, but it is up to 160 hours remaining. Should I suspend tasks and hope to get another one that'll actually work on something else or what?

Thanks, Mike. That did the trick. It restarted it, and will be done in a bit shy under 19 hours. Oh, and if my PC could talk, it is probable it would like to thank you... though, in such a scenario, it would probably petition for a night off :P

You didn't specify if it was the host with AP on CPU or the host with AP on ATi GPU that got stuck. Makes a vast difference.

It sometimes helps just to suspend and unsuspend the stuck task to get it running again.

On my PC, it just says "Running" when on my laptop it will have running, or running with CPU and/or ATI GPU. If anything like this happens again, my first thing to try will be rebooting. After that, if no luck, I'll suspend it.
