My Wish List
Posted 20 Sep 2014 by lx45803
How about an option to ignore the idle timer when the computer is locked? I keep BOINC on a long idle timeout since my CPU fan is really noisy, and I regularly work in the same room as my machine. However, this results in quite a bit of wasted time every time I leave to sleep or whatever, or bump my desk hard enough to move the mouse a bit.
This is probably dependent on whether each OS provides a way to see if the console is sitting at a lock screen or not.
