So basically Even if I click it to bench or play a game and then reopen. It locks pc again.
Maybe reducing the RAM use in the settings can help those lockups?
If you need to keep pausing it for specific programs, like Windows Media Player or whatever you're using, you can include it on the config file so that BOINC automatically pauses whilst that software is running.
Search for the cc_config.xml file (think it's by default in user/appdata/boinc) and add this line: <exclusive_app>program name .exe
Then restart boinc or choose to read config file from the advanced menu.
