In time, several works get marked 'paused' due to the fact that 'the computer is in use'.
Can somebody advise me how to re-activated these paused work files?
It would be a shame to let them go to waste.

In BOINC Manager open options then select computing preferences. Make sure "suspend when computer is in use" is not checked.

Also check "suspend when non-BOINC CPU usage is above" .... I have mine set to 80%, maybe you have some CPU intensive background task that is causing SETI to be suspended.

Changed my settings accordingly (had paused when computer is in use and paused GPU activated)
Now I have to wait and see what happens!

Thanks in advance for the reply!

My Windows 10 Home edition has been running without a glitch for 4 days. I daily check the Maintenance Reliability History. It is running now LHC@home Atlas tasks on two cores of my A10-6700 AMD CPU with VirtualBox 5.1.26.
