I often to a suspend when i need the processing power back for a few minutes and then forget to restart; a 'fixed time' suspend would be a great option in the menu choices.

Hi Ron,

I guess that this is a BOINC specific thing and not related to FM@H.

However, it should not be necessary to do a suspend, since the BOINC jobs are running in a low priority mode such that you automatically get your processing power back when you need it.

Cheers!

Another option is to go into the BOINC computing preferences on the manager and change the amount of the processor used (17.5% per thread, 25% per core) or change the CPU time and drop 5%, 10% or however much time you think you need.

I thought the standard BOINC 'snooze' function did this, albeit for a fixed time (60 minutes? 30 minutes).

Never used it myself, but you might like to try it.

Cheers,

Al.

The "snooze" function is for two hours and then it auto restarts.

What the OP might want to use is the 'exclusive applications' section inside the Boinc Manager. Any program put in there means Boinc stops and does not crunch as long as it is running, when that program stops Boinc resumes. Gamers use it alot to get their games running at full speed with no lag. It is under Tools, computing preferences and then the tab exclusive applications.
