Two problems with MilkyWay@Home:

1. MilkyWay@Home tasks continue to use CPU while suspended. In my case, 6 tasks using 75% of CPU time, same as when tasks are active.

2. Tasks for the application "MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation 1.62 (mt)" get stuck and never end. An example line in BOINC Manager looks like this: Progress 0.015%; Elapsed 01:56:52; Remaining ---. Aborting that task is the only way to allow other tasks to proceed.

As this question is about the MW apps, you'll have to ask there.
