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.
