Recently, I have been getting the following message in the status bar:
"Postponed: VM Hypervisor failed to enter an online state in a timely fashion."
How do I fix this?

I found that going to virtualbox.org and installing 5.1 fixed that issue. But now I am getting
"Postponed: VM environment needed to be cleaned up."
I am looking into it now.

Okay, I seem to have found something.

It appears to be a problem with insufficient RAM. As you can see there
BOINC is limiting the percentage of RAM that it can use. Mine were set
fairly low and I turned them up to 80% and 100% for in use and not in
use respectively. I then restarted my system and now I have several
more tasks running and no postponed message. Hope that helps.
