Manager=v5.2.13: I suspended SETI from getting new work but then it doesn't finish processing the one unit it has in the queue. I did not suspend work on that unit. The messages log says "not requesting new work or reporting results". How do I get it to finish and report that one unit without getting a new one? Is this a bug or would it be an enhancement to have a checkbox that asks whether existing work units should be finished prior to suspension?

Thanks!

Rather than Suspend, on the Projects tab you need to select SETI and click the button for No New Work. That'll allow the result to finish and upload. After that, you can suspend, or detach, whatever works for you.

Suspending means exactly that: Do not crunch anything under this project, do not ask more work, do nothing with it until I say so.

suspend
To cause to stop for a period; interrupt
