Hello,
On my Laptop with Ubuntu 18LTS I have set the option to stop calculating while the computer is in use.
This works perfect when i use the internal keyboard and touchpad.
But at home i use a docking-Station with external mouse and keyboard - and this devices are ignored by BOINC.

Is there any way to tell the boinc manager to take all keyboards into account?

So at the moment there is nothing i can do except manually start/stop boinc?

Today i tried to put the mouse directly on the notebook, but it does also not recognize the activity (only once after plug-in).
