Not sure what you mean. Boinctasks displays in the elapsed time column, a time, followed by another time in brackets. The CPU% column appears to try to show the percentage of one versus the other, but including how many CPU cores are set to run for that task. Which of these is Boinc controlled and which are calculated by Boinctasks?

1. No Suspend on Checkpoint. This is the most important feature of BoincTasks. 2. Impossible to set column widths. Each time a column width is changed it also changes the width of columns on both sides. If another column is added it appears off screen to the right with no bottom slider bar. 3. On Projects tab if you sort on Project they're case-sensitive and so climateprediction.net appears at the bottom after World Community Grid. Please make it case insensitive. 4. On Projects tab if sorted on Project and one wants to highlight the top Project, e.g. Asteroids, you cannot. It highlights the last Asteroid computer and everything else. Below the top Project you can highlight any range you want. 5. On the Computers tab if you highlight a computer and click the Info button you get a nice display but it does not reveal the GPU. Please add GPU info. 6. On the Messages tab please add the ability to display a specific Project. Also it would be nice if it was displayed in descending order with the most recent events at the top and didn't require paging many pages to see latest events. 7. Please allow not viewing NCI WUs. Used to be able to select what to view: CPU and/or GPU and/or NCI.

If I set a task to take 1.5 cores, the CPU% column gives erroneous figures. It works ok for whole numbers of cores.
There's a good reason to set 1.5 cores, some tasks are more taxing and make the computer sluggish, so I make the scheduler do less of those by giving them 1.5 cores each, using <avg_ncpus>1.5</avg_ncpus> in app config.

I have a load of Windows computers which Boinctasks works with fine. But I have some oddities - a 2nd instance of Boinc on the same machine, using a different port. And a Virtual Linux machine (Oracle Virtualbox) on the same machine (different IP). Both these don't work with the "Extra, boinc prefs" menu if I'm in the task tab and select one computer on the left - instead it shows the prefs for a different machine, possibly the last one I looked at the preferences for. If I go into the computers tab and select one computer not on the left column but in the main section, it gets the right one.
