Hello Everyone!

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz [Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11] 4gb Memory

Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

SETIatHome v8 8.00

BOINC MGR using 'local preferences'

Computing TAB
USAGE Limits: 100% / 100%
When To Suspend: All off - NO checkmarks
OTHER: 0.1/0.5/60/60

Network TAB
All off - NO checkmarks

Disk & Memory TAB
Disk: off/ 0.1/ 90%
Memory: 50%/ 99%/ Off/ 75%

Daily Schedules TAB

When started and left untouched, SETI will run for a minute or so then suspend stating 'computer not in use'. Pressing a key or touch-pad restarts SETI back to 'Running'



Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Gordon

Check the preferences here on the web site, at and more specifically whether Suspend when no mouse/keyboard input in last N minutes is checked and set. The local preferences only override all the same web preferences, but if a web preference isn't in the local preferences, the web preference is used as well.

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.
