Hello guys.
Screensaver shows that computer is in use but it's not. Any ideas?
"In use" means any keyboard or mouse activity.
In your account, under Computing preferences, make sure
Suspend when computer is in use
and
Suspend GPU computing when computer is in use
aren't selected. If they are, scroll to the bottom of the page and Click on the Edit preferences button, de-select those 2 options, and save the changes. The next time your computer contacts the Seti servers, it will update and use those new settings. (or (if using the simple view) for Seti click on Project commands, Update for it to get the changes straight away).
