For the last 2 months now my screen saver has not been able to load the star globe graphics with the regularity I would expect from my screen saver settings. It will go away for a week at a time and come back for one day. Then it will go away for an undetermined amount of time and then it will come back for maybe 12 hours. I have checked with the boards on Einstein@Home and we cannot resolve this issue. When it happens the "show graphics" button on the tasks will be grayed out. I can load a run the star graphics program, and as I stated, it does come back once in a while. I prefer to see the star globe rather that the BOINC statistics, but since about mid November, I have not been able to consistently see the star globe. I have looked at all the settings and when it does come back it operates as per the settings I have.
Any suggestions?
