I would like GPUGRID tasks to go to sleep when the GPU becomes unavailable due to Fast User Switching or Remote Desktop access. Once the GPU is redected, the task should resume computation.

This may be better handled with BOINC.

Not sure on the fast user switching but an issue related to remote desktop (RDP) is that Windows replaces the current driver with their own when using RDP and that almost always leads to a WU error when the "next" task is started. I use UltraVNC for remoting and have no problems at all. I am pretty sure any VNC utility will work fine.
