How do I change the preferences on my Mac so that no project attempts to use my GPU? I know I can always set the computing preferences to 'Suspend GPU computing when computer is in use' and then just set the time period for long enough so that it will always cover the general amount of time I might be away from my computer. But the client still downloads tasks that attempt to use the GPU, and then those tasks eventually get aborted cause I don't meet the deadline and then the client downloads more GPU tasks. How to I get the client to only download tasks that will use my computer's CPU? Thank you

Go to the project's website, project preferences, edit those and deselect the GPUs then save changes to the website. The next time BOINC contacts the project it will get those preferences in.
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!
