When the CPU becomes too busy, BOINC will usually suspend all tasks momentarily. But for some reason, Collatz on my Intel GPU just keeps running. The status says suspended as it should, but the progress % is still going up. Eh??

Go into the Boinc Manager, down by the clock, and click on Activity and make sure the "run based on preferences" AND "use gpu based on preferences" is checked.

Yeah they're both checked.
