I get this message in Console: setiathome_8.00_x86_64-apple-darwin__opencl_intel_gpu_sah wakeups

I checked because my Mac is waking all the time after I put it to sleep. I notice that the fan is roaring, and start to troubleshoot. Seems that setiathome is waking it up.

I am using BoincManager 7.6.22 ; will try the update.

Does anyone have any info or analysis to share on this?

Make sure that:
1. You have Activity (BOINC Manager->View->Advanced view->Activity menu) set to "Run based on preferences" and "Use GPU based on preferences".
2. Set preferences to Suspend when on battery if that is required (is it a laptop or notebook Mac?)
3. Make use of Suspend when no mouse/keyboard input in last N minutes preference (only available in the web preferences) and that you set that to a couple of minutes before you allow the system to suspend.
4. Or if you suspend the system manually, to turn off BOINC before doing so.

According to Giorgo of the Ancient Astronaut Theorists I do not help with tech questions via private message. He's right: please use the forums for that.
