The suspend when in use options just pause the projects while the computer is in use. Since the laptop (for now) only has 4GB of RAM, I don't want it to run BOINC while the computer is being used by me or the kids. Network access is always available so it doesn't interfere with downloading or returning results. I use the same options on my PC since I use that for occasional resource demanding tasks outside of BOINC.I never use these options myself. Are they only pausing computation, or are they also interfering with the downloading of new work?
GPUGrid, apart from being CUDA-only, wants to be asked many times before it sends GPU tasks but seems eager to offer CPU tasks...
MilkyWay has server troubles which are being worked on.
Moowrapper is down since more than half a day.
That doesn't explain the other projects though. Regarding PrimeGrid, I suppose you double-checked which applications you have activated, and if you changed them, you remembered to click "Update preferences" deep down at the bottom of the page.
Yes, I did log in to my account on all of the project web pages to verify that they are set to use any type of GPU (they already were) and saved the settings and updated the projects on the laptop. No change..
Server issues on MilkyWay and Moo could certainly explain why I can't get work from those, but it would be nice if the client would actually report that instead of just saying "no tasks sent". I may also try SETI and SETI Beta since those do have GPU applications, just to see if they get any work. I don't like running those on GPU though because (in my experience on other computers) many of the tasks fail to validate, and the ones that do give terrible points per hour...
I'll check the settings again, try to connect again, and upload the logs here when I get home. If it's just server issues, I'll try to be patient and just let it run CPU tasks until GPU tasks are available again.
