1) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : "BOINC is suspended" (Message 46013)

Further to my last message, I now find that the screensaver behaves the same way even if I set prefereces to run when the computer is active, too. In this case, the message "Suspending computation" is generated at the same time the screensaver goes to "Boinc is currently suspended" with no further elaboration. When I touch a key to stop the screensaver, the message "Resuming computation" is generated.

I've just upgraded to BOINC 5.10.20. I use the BOINC screensaver, and have BOINC set not to run when the computer is active.

The screensaver starts normally, but after about 2 minutes, puts up the scrolling message "Boinc is suspended..." and will stay in that state for as long as I leave it. I see no indication of the issue from the messages, a copy of the relevant section of which is provided below, starting with when the screensaver first loads.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
