I am wanting to change my driver from the 510 series to the 515 series. For the ACEMD tasks, if you paused a task and changed drivers it would fail after the reboot. Is that also true for the Python tasks? Should I finish the current tasks before changing the video driver?

If you’re not in a rush, it’s probably best practice to just finish up your existing work before changing the drivers.

But technically these Python tasks do restart properly even when stopped. They will restart at about 2% for a few mins before resuming at the correct checkpoint percentage.

Thank you. I had seen the Python tasks act as you say, but wasn't sure if they would survive a driver change.
