    The CPU time is being reset the 0.00 after being preempted. When Boinc comes back to work the project it start out at the preempted point but reset the cpu time to 0. Is this a bug in the project or is there something I need to do at my end. Thank you

      Try to put \"Leave applications in memory while preempted\" : yes

        I\'m afraid this just doesn\'t work. When units only took a few minutes to crunch there was every likelihood that the whole thing could be completed in one chunk. With 5 hours or so, there is a fair likelihood that, if you need to turn off your computer overnight, your work will be rendered invalid. I have wasted days of processing time due to this problem which has to be sorted out. These discussion boards are full of similar experiences.
        I\'m afraid I am turning off my SZTAKI project until we have something more reliable and until we have a more reasonable time allocation for completing the work. Recent experience is that Earliest Deadline First mode comes into play too quickly - you must allow shared projects to have their fair share of my valuable(?) computer time. Particularly if my contribution is invalidated at the end of the work.
        P.S. Off topic, I know, but why is the SZTAKI clock 15 minutes behind UTC?
