I have a task using 0.894 CPUs and 1 AMD/ATI GPU that refuses to suspend when my computer is in use. For now I have suspended GPU processing and cancelled this task because this will not work for me, but is there a way for these work units to become suspended?

Go onto the webpage under your account then computing preferences and you will see this line:
Suspend GPU work while computer is in use?
Enforced by version 6.6.21+ NO

My setting is no but you should set it to yes. Make sure you click update preferences when you are done so it saves the info. Then do a manual update inside the Boinc Manager on your pc, down by the clock and your Boinc should stop using the gpu when the pc is in use.

A setting just above the yes/no setting is this one:
'In use' means mouse/keyboard activity in last minutes

Make sure you put something into that box to reflect how long you want Boinc to think you could still be using the pc after the last mouse click, key press, screen touch etc.

It may not say 'suspended' for the gpu while this is going on, but the gpu should be available to you and not Boinc during this time.

There are other ways of doing this as well, so if this doesn't work let us know and we can give you another option to try, you are trying the easiest first.
