Hi everyone,

Since I installed the new release of Boinc on both of my computers, I've experiencing a problem with the screensaver. Every time one of my computer enter the screen saving mode I've some trouble to get out. Just moving the mouse or hitting a key won't switch off the screen saving mode for a long period of time (some tenth of seconds). Sometimes I've have to hit the key Ctrl+Alt+Del just to get back to a windows app.

Does someone else experiment the same problem?

Is there something I can do, except switching off the screen saver?

Thanks

David

Can you say exactly which BOINC version you have and what projects you are running. This last may affect responsiveness.
