    Just signed up to crunch for SZTAKI, and noticed that even when BOINC Manager suspends all my projects, including SZTAKI, when the computer is busy due to keyboard/mouse activity, and even though my global BOINC settings are to NOT use CPU while computer is in use, but to keep applications in memory while suspended, I find three instances of zeta_1.01_windows_intelx86.exe, each using 8% CPU, while BOINC Manager shows three SZTAKI tasks suspended at 3.001% progress. This is clearly bad behavior. Given my settings, they should be kept in memory while suspended (like they are now), but they should NOT be using the CPU. Interestingly, even though they each are using 8% CPU, there is no progress on the tasks, so it seems like they are using the CPU doing nothing useful while they are not supposed to be using the CPU to start with!...

    Is this something that will be fixed, soon? Or, should I not be churning SZTAKI jobs?

    Thanks

      This is getting even weirder. Few minutes after I wrote my question, the tasks in BOINC Manager jumped from 3.001% to 100%, ready to report. And all this happened while my computer was in use, me typing & clicking, and tasks being shows as "Suspended - computer in use" in BOINC Manager. This is not normal. Clearly a bug in the application, it seems.

        Any responses to this? I just saw this behavior as well.
