My 1080ti is idling most of the time waiting for the next WU to start do to the WUs only lasting a few seconds. Can anyone explain why this occurs and perhaps the scientists could address this?

The idea is to run multiple WUs on a single GPU in parallel to keep the GPU busy. Three is enough. This can be done via app_config.xml. It must have the following section:
<app_version> <app_name>xansons_gpu</app_name> <plan_class>cuda65_windows</plan_class> <ngpus>0.33</ngpus> </app_version>
You can get the ready-made app_config.xml here. Just put this file in the project directory. This app_config also contains a section for the CPU app which tells the CPU app to occupy only 2 CPU cores per WU allowing to run multiple WUs in parallel. You can remove this section if you don't need it.
