Windows 10 - HP pavilion g6 23xx

My Laptop-Screen was blinking slowly in the morning after running foldit.exe
with a recipe during the night.
HDD access is generally relatively slow and heavy, because another task was recording for 3h, too.
After I killed foldit.exe with task manager the blinking stopped.
By the way - it was very difficult/short time to reach task manager while the blinking phase ON.

Slowly blinking screen - What are the causes from foldit.exe side?

Thanks for the feedback WBarme1234! That's very strange; I'm not sure what could cause that behavior. Possibly it could be related to your display or computer sleep settings? Let us know if it happens again or if you discover any more info!
