Workaround is setting it to 1440 minutes and hoping it doesn't happen at an inopportune time the next day.
Setting the Check for new to 0 should disable. 0=Disabled.

Questions / Boinctasks stealing window focus due to notify feature
« Last post by Pichu0102 on June 22, 2020, 10:17:54 pm »
Hello. The notify feature in Boinctasks is causing it to steal window focus from other windows, causing lost keystrokes when trying to type into, say, a web browser.

I noticed this would happen every 30 minutes before, so I looked in setting for something that was 30 minutes. An option of show alert every 30 minutes was checked. I disabled that, but it didn't fix the problem.

Then I saw check for notices was also set to 30 minutes. I decided to test it by setting it to check for notices every minute, and sure enough, every minute, Boinctasks would steal focus from whatever window was active at the time (even its own configuration dialog, oddly enough).

Workaround is setting it to 1440 minutes and hoping it doesn't happen at an inopportune time the next day.

Questions / Re: Instances crashing

Could this cause it ?
It's not unusual for an update to cause a problem.
A full shutdown and restart should solve any problems.
Hidden might not be a problem, just a setting to remove things an average user doesn't want to see.

But you didn't tell what crashed.

Setting the offset to 5 or -5 should do the trick, otherwise changing TJunction is OK.

Wish List / Re: Allow shutdown of remote clients

I can do it with access to the Boinc manager on the remote computer (i.e. being at that computer, or using a remote desktop to get to its boinc manager).  Are you saying that the boinc client doesn't have this function for the remote access?  If so I'll ask over there.
Unless they added it recently it's not in the BOINC Client for remote access.

Cloud / Re: Cannot add "computer" column to cloud

It doesn't work with mine.  I can change the columns and every one is displayed except computer.  Let me know if there's a way I can show you.  If you can access my cloud I can set it up and give you a screenshot of what I see locally.

I tried setting the Tjunction manually in the box later to what Core Temp says Tj max is, and that makes all temperatures in line with hwinfo, hwmonitor, and core temp, but on the temperature page it causes a flashing warning message to appear, so I set it back to default Tjunction because I'm worried I messed something up here.

I'm not sure what to put in temperature offset since the different cores seem to have different temp differences from one another and putting in a value fixes only one value's accuracy.


The cores have separate sensors, the temps are probably not the same, so that's just fine.

If you want to correct without the flashing warning that's harmless, just a reminder it's not the default setting.
Use the offset in the expert tab, that's doing essentially the same thing, moving the temp reading up or down.

Non of the settings can harm the processor in any way.
Oh, alright, I thought changing the Tjunction temp would cause program malfunction due to the flashing blue and red warning. It seems like setting Tjunction to 105 makes all cores accurate instead of just one with temp offset, so that's okay to set it up as, right?
