    I feel bad, I keep forgetting to start WCG before I go to work and\or bed, that's easily 60-80 hours worth of crunching I could commit each week on the days I work alone :/

    All you have to do is set it to suspend when the machine is in use.

    1. a. Go to the advanced view, click on "advanced" and then "preferences"
    b. under the first tab, "processor usage", there should be a text box after "only after computer has been idle for" and 3.00 should be filled in. I think this is the default.

    2. Now click OK, click on "activity" in the menu bar and make sure "run based on preferences is selected".

    Now, whenever you are away for more than 3 minutes, boinc will run. It will stop as soon as you return.

    To increase memory available while you work, go back to "advanced" and then "preferences". In the third tab, "disk and memory usage", make sure the bottom box "leave applications in memory when suspended" is unchecked.

    Happy crunching.

    I had it setup like that, but it would randomly start going when I was playing games from time to time or browsing the internet, so I just started closing it when I was home and starting it up before work\bed. It's running at home right now (I'm at work) and should be for 18-20 hours a day for the next 3 days I work :D

    Hmmm. That's weird. I wonder if the games run in something like a virtual machine so it sees the VM running but doesn't realize there is also user activity.

    Are you running a reasonably current version of BOINC? If so, I would register over on the BOINC forum and post a question (after doing a search of course).

    I would use the google site function since bbs search engines generally suck.

    site:boinc.berkeley.edu {search terms here}

    I gave it a shot but didn't find anything.

    It turns out one of the 2600k rigs couldn't connect to the network for a few days so there is going to be a butt load of wu's that will on tomorrow's stats. It's purely a fluke. I just want to say that lest anyone thinks I have 4 socket server board in my pocket. :cool:

    To fill you guys in

    Just wanted to say the following, want everyone to be clear and know what's going on.

    I know I haven't been around as much lately, and interest has sorta just stayed in a limbo for a little bit now. I try my best to go on TPU as much as I can but it's hard to follow everything.

    I work full time, then after work I have side jobs here and there tuning performance cars, not only that, I have my mom to visit (eat there as well), I have a G/F I need to dedicate time to and other things here and there. For the most part of the day, I'm pretty busy.

    I just wanted to ask you guys that if there is anything you need, just shoot me a PM. I get a notification when I log in, it's much harder to miss. If you post it, sometimes at work I'll read a thread or two, then leave 10 more unread. By the time I get back to it it'll refresh and give me a new set of posts to read.

    Although I am the Captain of the team, this is a team effort and I'm really glad of what you guys are doing. You guys have my back and have not let me down, even when we are all going through some pretty shitty times. We have stuck together and as a family we have battled it out. For a team like the one we are, we are kicking ass and have accomplished what other teams wish they could ever do even with all their amazing powerhouses and thousands of members. We have something special and that's what keeps me going!

    Truly, from my heart guys, keep up the great work! :rockout: :toast:


    ***NOTE***
    If you want my #, shoot me a PM. I'm easier to reach via Text or Face book since I get the notifications on my phone. This way if you need me for anything I can get to it sooner. :toast:

    I'm trying to make the best out of it, shit is just real bad nowadays. I live by myself, but my aunt lost her job so I was supporting her and my mom. She finally got a job now so hopefully things can start to turn around for me. But I'm still here trying my best. :rockout

    Yeah. This is making me rethink getting another 135w TDP cpu. It's BD though so I have to. I don't really have a choice in the matter. It's like breathing - something that has to be done. But will definitely have a strong bias to the 95w chips in the future. I mean the k's run so cool even overclocked. As someone pointed out though I think it is just an Intel thing since IIRC the Thubans are mostly 135w and those seem to draw about the same as the k's.

    Anyway, don't sweat it (yuk, yuk).

    I have a 2720QM comming my way. It will replace my on/off crunching work laptop. The sad thing is that I will not be home to receive it before in 3 weeks. I just ran my T5600 at 80 % here in my "office" (an 20 " container w/o AC). 83 C. I think I will continue to only crunch in my AC'ed hotel room.
