Two updates ago my screensaver started switching through tasks every few seconds instead of every 30 min or hour as before. I changed no settings that I am aware of.
No Idea what happened or how to fix it.

While the screen saver looks great if you are running any calculations on your graphics card you may want to simply turn the Bonic screen saver off. Infact turn all screen savers off. It will simply blank out the monitor.
What this will do is let you calculate any of the gpu tasks faster. I am talking about the ones where the application column (for Nvidia/GeForce cards) includes "cudaXX" where XX is a number . Or something like this "(opend_a65_cat1132)" which is what ATI/Radeon cards show when the gpu stuff is working.
To try the solve the issue without turning it off here is where I would look. At both the bonic and seti portions of your preferences see if anything is set to task switch more often than once every 60 minutes. And I just saw where you can change the parameters on your screen saver in the preferences areas. So I would take a look at that also.

- The post you answer is from 18 Apr 2014
- The issue (bug) is with several 'new' BOINC versions and unrelated to Preferences
