You should be able to do so in Windows's Customization panel.
AFAIK you just right-click and use the Personalize settings in W7 to shut it off. Also, I'm pretty sure you can opt out of the screen saver when you install the BOINC Manager (it's on by default)
Got the new rig up and crunching
I am hoping to get one, by years end 2014.

My next build:
- 2600K/Asus P8P67 Pro
- 2x4GB GSkill Ripjaws
- Seasonic M12 II 750w
*Rest of system TBA
Just repaired my PS2. Should help me stay away from Steam sales and those WCG-crippling games.
That's a very festive build you have there.
Also, ONE THOUSAND PAGES OF TPU WCG AWESOMENESS, YOU GUYS!
Why are we not celebrating?!
If I set up my pc with 2 user accounts and the admin account has WCG running. If I switch user does wcg still crunch?
On the new one you have I believe it does- iirc I set it to run for all users. I believe this can be changed but am not familiar with how to change it.
The green/black cables were not in my plan but since they're attached to a Seasonic X Gold 1050w psu....
My son will use my PC sometimes, so I set the new one up with me as admin, and a new user account for him if he needs to use it so he can not screw with anything. This morning when I switched back from his account to mine it did not look like wcg had been running, but maybe it was.
just see if the cpu's are running in the taskbar.
Wednesday I finally delidded my 4770k, just made a thread about it here. Long story short, it dropped temps at 4.4ghz considerably while crunching from 74 to 60 (and ibt temps from 94 to 70). I had been wanting to do it for a while, and it's finally done
Day before yesterday, I got about 20 MCM WU's. Since then, the FA@H WU's have been running, despite half the MCM's having a due date a whole day sooner than them.
Until now, aside from the BETA's that will high jack the work, WU's generally work in order of deadline. What's up with this?
Is FA@H a heavy pushing it's weight around with the newbie?
and your worried about 74c while crunching
Just woke up and checked to see how my crunching went over night and had a message on the screen saying..
Do you want windows to check online for unexpected shut down?
I thought wow I guess my system isn't 100% stable, I normally run core temp and figured Id fire it back up and to my surprise all cores were yellow 104-105c
Looked into the pump and it wasn't running. The water lines were hot and the system was still crunching away. I wonder how long it was running without flow!
Turned out that the power to the pump wasn't making a proper connection
ummm, oops? Almost turned your comp into a coffee maker!
I believe the setting is in the installation to run for everyone of as one user. However, installing it normally make it run only when it's logged in. If you run it as a service, it will always run if the PC is not logged in (I believe - that's what we do with most of our servers).
Holy crap bro, that is some scary shit right there!!! Glad it is okay man.
The celeron has begun...
I downvolted it to the lowest possible value, .80, from the stock .92. Since data loss is not an issue, I even felt brave enough to overclock it to 100mhz more to 2.8ghz. If nothing fails here I may become brazen enough to push 2.9 but that would be really pushing it I think, hence brazen.
At some point, in the coming weeks, I am gonna ask you how to do this, exactly. The computer's at school are constantly being logged off of and being logged on by someone else. If there is a way to keep them crunching, as long as they are on, that's the info I NEED! I will get back to you, as the time comes closer.
I'll just drop this here, since I will forget, but google is your friend:
Electrocute the keyboard and chassis. Blame it on a grounding problem.
Sorry guys that I have not been around much but I am still putting down some points with the 10 threads I have going. I hope later on I can locate a i7-860 to put 16 threads to work! I have been really bad sick these past few weeks and really wish I could get over it.
I might be looking for buying an Xeon 2011 CPU, from a guy, a 3.2ghz Xeon E5 ES, 4C, 8T, 125$. this could make a nice server with BOINC running. I just have to look at my finance xD
I thought I could build a server on the cheap. It's gone okay, but even nabbing bits off eBay, it's mostly just been this.
Servers ain't cheap that's for sure! However, if you keep your eyes open you can find deals out there... especially when our fellow cruncher/folders decide to upgrade their stuff OR need the cash for another project.
Ion got a fantastic deal on his 4P for reasons related to the above- it was worth at least 2x what he paid for it!
I was looking around and there are 8c/16t Xeons ES going for as little as $150; those are <2Ghz parts though. Boards aren't too expensive, $300 seems to be the baseline for a good dual 2011 board. There are cheaper ones but you'd sacrifice some stuff like PCIe slots and SATA ports (some ship with SCSI only) but yeah, most of it is just throwing money at ebay until a server pops up.
