I have already posted this at Rosetta as well.

Every time that my BOINC manager communicates with Rosetta, the site's preferences is setting "Suspend GPU computing when computer is in use" and altering "Suspend when non-BOINC CPU usage is above". I guess there are options that need to be added to Rosetta's computing preferences page.

Having a project set preferences it doesn't have listed is annoying.

Always thought preferences of a project would only transfer to a client if the time-stamp at the site has changed (latest changed project profile principle). If time-stamp on client and project are same or older, nothing should update. These time-stamps are recorded in the event log.

I run many projects, so I primary use BOINCstats to set preferences.

After further testing, It appears that BOINC manager is ignoring the BOINCstats' time stamp and falling back to the last project's preferences that has been changed.

The workaround/PTF would then be to go to a project that does have the missing options, change and save the relevant location profile, and run an update. The fallback would then always be that project profile.

I was lazier than that. Synced with BOINCstats, then made that my local preferences.

If you have just one client, why then even bother with BAM? Setting local prefs makes BAM useless... anyway, you seem contend with the present fix.

I don't access to all 4 of my PCs. One I have loaned out to a friend to game on.
