Partly because the screen saver slows down the crunching. If your cpu is using time to redraw the screen then it isn't using that time to crunch.

Patience, my friend. A new server is coming online in the next week or two, so this should change. Happy new year.

And the gpu ones for me are only 1 1/2 minutes long, but the new server should give us lots of units to munch on.

Those seem to be gpu units, not the n-body cpu units. Try turning off the gpu work option under your account and see if that is better.

Couldn't there be some screen captures so that a 'screen saver' could give people some idea of the progress that is being made? Not something that is frequent or real-time, but perhaps a screen shot at 00:00 GMT daily or one day each week so that we know something is taking place besides our computers being used.

Seems I was mistaken...here at MW BOTH kinds of units go to the cpu, not one type for the cpu only. I don't know how to fix it, sorry.

If you go into the Boinc Manager down by the clock you can see your progress and other things about Boinc.

There was a screensaver being worked on but the person working on it left. There's another n-body screensaver which I might release at some point (but I don't really like it for a variety of reasons) depending on if I ever get to fixing a few things.
