    Strange one; I fold on my workstation at work, every night GPU folding goes idle when it finishes a work unit and sits there, it downloads the next one but just sits at 0% and the GPU goes into a full idle state, as soon as I RDP in it starts again. CPU folding keeps running/downloading etc without issue.

    Any ideas? Reinstalled FAH and drivers, can't see anything about stopping when idle.

    If I leave the RDP session running, it keeps going, but I have the network configured to kick everyone off everynight and don't want to change that. Also would prefer not to leave a laptop running in my house just to maintain a system folding.

    (boss is ok with me doing this FYI)

    Any ACPI states attached to the GPU that would make it do stuff like that?

    Not that I am aware of, all sleep etc is disabled, should say as remote cannot check anything in the bios at all.

    Just checked in power settings and saw link power state was at moderate, changed to off. It is like the GPU falls asleep when I don't get a WU immediately, maybe that was turning it off.... will find out tonight.
