Hi, Ive got a problem when my PC is not crunching overnight.

Over the last few days/weeks, Ive put all my tasks 1-2 hours on hold/paused - & allowed BOINC to process all the ones above 3 hours.
Last night I had 30+ tasks remaining all 2 hours or less to process & actiavted them - allowed them to process.

Now, as im processing 5 at a time, i would expect 20+ of them to be done/finished this morning, but apparently not.

I have WIN 10: One of those Pcs that are in-built to the screen - Not a screen & a separate box.

SETTINGS: POWER & SLEEP. Turn off screen after 15 minutes of inactivity. SLEEP: PC NEVER goes to sleep.

I have it on the BOINC screensaver - if needed, but if the screen is off after 15 minutes i dontthink that is affected.

Any ideas on how to make my computer crunch overnight ?

If you can't find it otherwise, I would disable this setting. There have been issues where certain video drivers disable the GPU when the screen power saver is active. You'll have to just manually power off the screen.
