I installed the V7 client on my HTPC and made entries for Core 17, since it's a GeForce 650 Ti card.

I don't want the client working while I'm watching a movie, but most of the day the system sits idle.

This is Windows 8 Pro, with Media Center installed.

I set a screensaver for 5 minutes of inactivity, but it's still not registering as idle.

Any ideas?

I've got no ideas, but have you tried the folding forum, Hard forums, or EVGA forums? The great people in those places usually have all the know-hows!

Got it to work. I had to set the power options to turn off the display after a few minutes. Once I did that it would Fold on the medium setting.

Thanks for the info, I mentioned in the core 17 thread I wasn't sure how that worked. Once my new GPU arrives in a week or so I will have to give that a try. Probably can't afford to fold on it 24/7 but I figure I should at least test it out!
