Hi, I just installed BOINC on my Huawei P9 Lite (Android 6.0), and i have a problem: whenever i leave my phone with the screen turned off for more than 5 minutes, the BOINC app shuts itself down, and when I open it again of course the tasks restart at 0%.

What can I do?

That's a setting in Android, where it shuts off applications that use too much battery when the screen is off. You can turn that off.
My P9 Lite (Android 7) runs Seti fine.

Settings->Battery->Close apps after screen lock->slide the switch for BOINC to off.
You can also get there via Settings->Battery->Consumption level->Software->BOINC (tap it to open)
I've set Power-intensive prompt 'On', Close after screen locked 'Off'
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!

A delusion starts like any other idea, as an egg. Identical on the outside, perfectly formed. From the shell, you'd never know anything was wrong.

I can confirm what Ageless says because my Huawei Sensa's had the same issue and this is what I did to solve mine.
