Now, these forums may be confusing and all, but you asked this same question in the "Getting started" forum yesterday. I answered there. See

In the BOINC Manager under "Status" I keep getting a message that "defers" for five minutes with a countdown clock. When it runs out it starts again. I am expecting a screen saver image that shows a rendition of calcultions but only getting a bouncing log.
