I have a PC that has active and queued tasks that I would like to send to the great retirement home in the sky.

I have moved it to a Planet on its own but can't see a setting/checkbox that simply says get no new tasks for computers in that group.

How do I gracefully let it slip away from PrimeGrid without dumping all the tasks?

One way is to untick "Use CPU" and also "Use ATI/AMD GPU" and "Use NVIDIA GPU" on that venue (planet).

Aborting all the task is also OK (or you can let them finish of course).

Uncheck the "use cpu" and "use gpu" tickboxes in that planets preferences and it won't download any more.

@JeppeSN and @ robish

Thank you - I have unchecked the boxes and anticipate being able to remove life support in about 8 hours.

My preferred way to stop a computer from getting new tasks is to press "No new tasks" in the BoincMgr GUI or use the command-line equivalent

boinccmd --project "http://www.primegrid.com" nomorework

doh - now the solutions are obvious!

I rarely look at the projects tab as I only run Primegrid.

Thanks for pointing that one out
