GPU "waiting for idle"

Postby Viceroy » Sat Feb 08, 2014 12:34 pm

Why is not my GPU active folding? It just says "Paused: waiting for idle".

Welcome to the F@H Forum Viceroy,

Please note that by default, the GPU will only fold when the system is idle since for some users, there is a noticeable screen lag if the GPU is folding while they are using the system. For details about idle state, please read this (http://folding.stanford.edu/home/faq/fa ... ion/#ntoc3).

You can move the power bar to full and that should start up the GPU slot but then you risk Lag. The default, only GPU folds when you are not on the machine to prevent lag so you can get full use of the machine when you are on it.

Idle mode only kicks in if your monitor goes to sleep, or if you use the fah screensaver. So you have options on how to run the client.
