Questions and Answers : Getting started : tasks don't restart
Is is just me, or don't these tasks continue after a restart? I have both a PC and Mac running them, and I can hibernate the PC, but the Mac I have to shut down and start up again, and I notice all the work running before the shutdown disappears and new jobs start. Because of the Microsoft fixes yesterday I had to restart the PC, and noticed it lost all the work too. I've started running other projects now, to save wasting time, and notice they survive a restart (the others I run are Poem and Malaria).

This restarting has to do with the tasks not having a checkpoint system, meaning the task won't restart back to a partially completed state. This may become necessary for longer-running tasks in the future, but as of now most tasks are short enough that you won't lose a significant amount of work. These other projects might implement this due to having run times much larger than this project, which is what you are experiencing, it seems.
