it doesn't seem there's a "Do work while computer is in use?" option anymore (or i'm too stupid to find it).

i CANNOT have it crunching all day!

It's still there in my account preferences. "Suspend work while computer is in use?"

Though the option reads the other way and I don't recall it ever being "Do work while computer is in use?" because most people want to stop it crunching while they're using the computer.

What I think you're looking for is "Suspend work if no mouse/keyboard activity in last" so that if you don't move the mouse or touch the keyboard, it stops crunching so your computer can go into standby.

On web 'Computing preferences' it is:
Suspend work while computer is in use?
Suspend GPU work while computer is in use?

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=global


In 'Local preferences' it is:
Computing allowed:
[v] While computer is in use
[ ] Use GPU while computer is in use
