Post:
Good day, everyone at BOINC and across the globe.
BOINC version: 7.16.11 (x64)

Issue: I'd like to have BOINC run 24-7, but either Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
or BOINC itself allows it to apparently become dormant. During the day I hear
the fans going like thery're working hard, but when I get up in the morning,
the fans are barely audible. I have to hit escape and sign in, then
the fans spin up like they were running before I slept.
The laptop (an Asus ROG Zephyrus M15, Intel Core i7

This issue occurs no matter which projects I run, either one or all the
ones I have in the BOINC manager.

I've set Win 10 to not sleep or turn off the monitor when plugged in,
and I've turned off the screen saver (set it to wait 600 minutes, and
the checkbox to 'on resume display logon screen is NOT checked.

Power plan is set to performance, will not turn off the display or
put the computer to sleep while plugged in.

I have 3 separate projects and recently, Science United running,
although I've been getting a LOT of 'Computation errors' on
Einstein@Home, MilkyWay@Home, and Amicable Numbers.
There are a couple of each of those running normally, currently,
and some 'Ready to start' and 'Waiting to run.
