Message 27147 - Posted: 8 Sep 2009, 3:50:51 UTC

For the first time in the use of BOinc I tried to set a Day of Week override. In one computer, which normally autostart at 19PM and autoshut down at 08AM the day after, I setted, only for the past Monday, a day of week override of this type:
22:15-23:55

But nothing happened: as the computer started, also BM started.
What's wrong ? Is this a fault of mine or .... ??
In that computer I'm using 6.6.37 64b version

What do you mean with the 'BM Started'? The BM is always loaded when a shortcut sits in the Startup folder. Does not mean the client is actually computing. That's done by the core client, not the BM GUI interface.

Presume you've got the 'Run based on preferences selected' still selected on the Activity menu.

Thanks Sekerob. You're right, I've not set "Run based on preferences"

It's my fault !!!

Is there someone who knows if it's possible to submit 2 time intervals

I made some guesses with separator from 2 time interval (space, comma, semicolon) but I received invalid time specification

I'm pretty sure that it isn't possible.

What is possible though, is an interval where BOINC is not working; i.e. finish time lower than starting time. I stop BOINC by running "Every day between hours of 14:07 and 14:00" to check the fans.

So... you run BOINC for 6 minutes a day? You don't stop between 14:00 and 14:07, but the other way around... so you run BOINC for 6 minutes. ;-)

No, no, no! Don't argue with double (triple?) negation with someone who has "invented" boolean logic ;-)

I said that I run BOINC between 14:07 and 14:00 - that implies it stops between 14:00 and 14:07. So, "I stop BOINC (for seven minutes) by running..." just as I said before.
