I have my GPU "suspended" because I don't want my video card used (tends to overheat when stressed because the fan is going bad). Even though I have all the options set for suspended I still get tasks downloaded that is for the GPU. How do I stop this?

Untoggle the "use GPU" for whatever brand of gpu you have in your project preferences.

and you won't get gpu tasks anymore.
