In the R@h preferences, have you allowed some CPU time for graphics? Locate the venue the machine is attached to in the event log as BOINC Manager is starting. Then look at the preference for \"Percentage of CPU time used for graphics\", here on the R@h website.

Since installing BOINC Manager 7.8.4 on my Mac I find the kernel_task using 70 to 71% of CPU capacity instead of its normal 1%. Quitting BOINC manager returns kernel_task usage to normal.

The only Project I'm running is Rosetta@home, limited to 3 processors. If I suspend the Project the processes don't stop, and the kernel_task still runs at 70%.

Quitting BOINC and relaunching it with the Project suspended sees kernel_task running at normal low levels. Un-suspending the Rosetta@home Process sees kernel_task again running at 70%.

Is this a BOINC problem, a Rosetta@home problem, or a local problem?
