I'm running several projects on BOINC v5.2.13 and most of the projects are having no problem with the screensaver. Sixtrack 4.67, however, will show graphics only if it is running and I press the "show graphics" button in the BOINC manager while it is running. As soon as the computer goes into screensaver mode, all I see is a floating BOINC logo with the words "LHC@Home:" and its percentage of completion. How do I get my LHC@Home screensaver to work?

The screensaver here has some problems, and noone seems to be able to figure out exactly why. There does not seem to be any common denominator as to what hardware it works with and what it does not. Of my 6 hosts in my home network 4 have nVidia cards, 1 has Nvidia onboard, and 1 has intel onboard. The 2 higher end cards run fine, the nVidia onboard works sometimes, and the other 3 screw up so badly I have had to remove LHC from them.

I have another problem: If I want to see my screensaver, the tasks say \\\"calculation error\\\" and disappear!?

Yeah that just happened to me!! Thankfully I wasn\'t too far into the WU so it wasn\'t really wasted but still. What is up with that.
