Hi,
is there a possibility to tell the BOINC client to finish all tasks it has downloaded but not request any new tasks? Knowing I'll have to shut down my computer for a week I'd like to be able to finish the work in my queue without having to just let it time out and waste all the computing power I already put into it.

thanks!

Select the project you don't want work from, click "No new tasks" on the command menu on the left (advanced view) or select the project, click Project commands and from there choose "No new tasks" (simple view).

The button/option will change to "Allow new tasks" as it always shows what option you have, not the state it's in. Repeat this for all projects you don't want to receive work from again.

The status of the project will now show as "Won't get new tasks".
