If you are using an older Rasbian distribution, (pre-loaded card) you might want to upgrade and update Raspbian to the latest version. To do so just do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
and wait a few minutes for the upgrade to finish, then restart your PI.
To make OSPi run in the background, there are some lines to add to your /etc/rc.local startup file. Those instructions can be found at the end of the Readme.txt here: https://github.com/rayshobby/opensprinkler/blob/master/OpenSprinkler%20Pi/software/demos/interval_program/README.txt
