I'm having a problem where I've told Boinc to suspend if the computer is in use (mouse/keyboard) for 5 minutes. I did that both locally and using Web configuration. However, it never really suspends. I have it set to use 25% of CPUs and 50% CPU time. Task Manager always shows at least 10% cpu consumed by Boinc and up to 25% and it always show progress percentage increasing.

This is with Boinc 7.14.2 (x64) on Windows 10 with 4-Core processor.

Any thoughts? I would love to continue to run this but it really needs to get out of my way when I'm working.

Thanks

BOINC Manager->View->Advanced view->Activity menu->set CPU and GPU to "run based on preferences", as setting these to "Run always" does exactly what you describe.

That of course fixed it.

Funny though that there's settings under "Options" for computing preferences and there's no mention there being related settings under "Activity". Should say something there!!

Thanks!
