I'm not getting data in the time-freq-power section of the screensaver. The other sections are as advertised. Is this normal? Is there a fix?

It's a known problem with (built-in) Intel GPUs. It's a problem with the OpenGL driver of the Intel GPU. Other than complaining about it at Intel, and waiting for them to fix it, there's no solution; other than that you don't use the screen saver, or if need be, use a dedicated GPU.

It works without problems on most all AMD and Nvidia GPUs, and non-computing graphics processors. So it really isn't a problem with the graphics application, but with the Intel GPU/driver.

There is a fix to make your power time frequency graph to work if you are experiencing a blank graph. I had to switch the graphic preference from seti@home classic to custom, than change the graph style to surfce, wireframe or plane. Do not use Rectangles, this is the one that I notice that does not show anything in the power time frequency graph. Their maybe a glitch with the rectangles at this time until they come out with a new update. Hope this helps you out.
