I'm unable to change my project preferences for about 2 weeks now. Because i have no ati gpu and do not want to use my CPU's for this project, i always have only selected Nvidia GPU from the projects preferences. since the introduction of the ATI GPU, my project preferences where reset and i'm unable to change it back.

Yes..
There is something wrong with the preferences settings.


I changed for (I wanted to change) a few minutes the computing preferences.
The first questions were all NO, but after saving the three questions are now YES.


  • Suspend work while computer is on battery power?
    Matters only for portable computers ja
  • Ausf├╝hrung anhalten wenn der Computer benutzt wird? ja
  • Suspend GPU work while computer is in use?
    Enforced by version 6.6.21+ ja


(strange, one question is in german and the setting also. And yes, I'm a german.. ;-)


I wanted to set the project preferences to not use nVIDIA/ATI GPU, only CPU.
After saving I see again all YES.


Now it's not possible to set NO in the preferences?

Try overriding settings with BOINC (Manager), noticed it too.
Now trying to post for the 3rd time, in a row :( , looks like the server is about to crash, everything very slow and sometimes refusing to load.

Indeed it's unpossible now.
After the ati gpu application was introducted the preferences page gave a error after changing the preferences, and everything was set to yes.
The page was fixed some time after because it doesn't give a error any more but it's stil not working.
I think the are having enough problems right now with the servers so this wil not have a very high priority i think.
