I unchecked "When computer is in use" with a 1 minute configuration in the BOINC manager preferences. But it doesn't work: when I start BOINC manager, it doesn't start the projects and display: "Suspending network activity - user is active". After 1 minute, the projects start crunching ("resuming network activity") - and never stop again no matter if I move the mouse, type on the keyboard or do anything else with the computer. I run BOINC manager 6.4.5 on 64 Bit Linux.

I wonder it it says "NETWORK activity" ... of course, the preferences setting is usage of the CPU - not the network.

See this thread answer b).

I run BOINC manager 6.4.5 on 64 Bit Linux.

What did you set in BOINC manager Activity menu -- "Run based on preferences" and/or "Network activity based on preferences"?

Both based on preferences ...

Okay, then it's perhaps a bug, but I can't check, because I still run 5.10.45 (and 5.8.16 :-).

I just updated to the latest 6.6.4 BOINC version (Linux 64 Bit) and there's no progress: it also doesn't work with the latest version. :-(

If you do not plan to test development versions, then do not update to the "latest 6.6.4 version". The latest version for Linux 64bit is 6.4.5.

I unchecked "When computer is in use" with a 1 minute configuration in the BOINC manager preferences. But it doesn't work: when I start BOINC manager, it doesn't start the projects and display: "Suspending network activity - user is active". After 1 minute, the projects start crunching ("resuming network activity") - and never stop again no matter if I move the mouse, type on the keyboard or do anything else with the computer.

It sounds like your local preferences aren't written away. Do you see a message such as "Reading preferences override file" in your Messages when you Save the preferences?
