I have a couple of questions about BOINC, maybe someone can help.

1. Is there a way to set BOINC to not run the First of every month? It would be helpful for giving the computer time to defrag.

2. Is there a way to assign one project just the CPU, and another project the GPU? Like, let SETI@Home only use my CPU, and MilkyWay@Home use just my GPU?

Thanks!

Deselect 'Use Nvidia GPU' in your Setiathome Project Preferences, and Deselect 'Use CPU' in your Milkyway Project Preferences, then click update for both projects,

Write a batch script and schedule that
call "%ProgramFiles%\BOINC\boinccmd.exe" --set_run_mode never
call monthly.myd&  rem MyDefrag script or your defragger
call "%ProgramFiles%\BOINC\boinccmd.exe" --set_run_mode auto
