I updated my preferences to do PPS(LLR), PPSE(LLR), Sierpinski / Riesel Base 5 (LLR), Sophie Germain Prime Search (LLR) and The Riesel Problem (Sieve).
When I saved the setting and returned to the preference page, I noticed that Proth Prime Search (Sieve) is enabled for CUDA and AMD (ATI).
I opened the setting page again, turned off these two checkboxes, and saved the setting.
But it isn't worked: the two GPU tasks were still enabled.
My BOINC client says "No usable GPUs found," so I don't think my computer will crunch extra jobs.
Still, I wonder why these two tasks can't be disabled.
Is this behavior a error or as specified?

I also have preference for "school" from before, and there are no GPU tasks enabled.

At the top of the preferences page you need to uncheck the Use ATI and Use NVIDIA boxes.

There is a note about this on the preferences edit page just above the subprojects section.

If you're not using any GPU applications, as you describe above, you can always do this: In BOINC, go Activity>Suspend GPU. You'll still get PPS Sieve tasks downloaded by default, but they won't run unless you change your preferences back to "Use GPU always".

Same result, anyway, so if you've got it sorted then I don't see a reason to mess about with it. It can be a handy tool when you want to run GPU taks on one PC but not other(s) though (or, indeed, if you want PRPNet to use the GPU on a machine but not BOINC, which you want to still run CPU WUs); it's a bit less hassle than setting BOINC to use GPUs based on preferences, and then configuring your different machines to be "work", "home", etc. You just select to suspent the GPU (again, only within BOINC) on whichever machines you want, but your other machines won't be affected at all and will simply act on your preferences.
