To get back to the orginal topic...

I am also running BOINC on a dual-core pentium with Vista (Ultimate). The "run by preferences" option is being ignored, and the processes are running full time even though my preferences say not to run when the user is active. The XP and 2000 boxes of the same make run correctly.

Yes, this happened to me too when I put BOINC on my Windows Vista Ultimate Edition. It no longer uses the preferences (not the local ones set in the "Simple View" UI, and not the ones set on the website). Like you describe, it just runs full time.

Anyone know what the deal is?
