I used to run the "setiathome-3.08.i386-winnt-cmdline.exe" with SETI_Hide set to use the SystemIdleProcess.
I have the GUI working (but no work units yet!)
How do I run the CLI version and make it use the SystemIdleProcess which worked so well, i.e. it worked whenever I was'nt or when any spare 'CPU_juice' was left!

I use the GUI, and the project .exe runs at system idle priority. (low priority setting on windows)

I've run beta for months with BOINC always processing. It's very good at giving up CPU cycles to anything that wants some. No slowdowns, even while gaming.

I hate to sound like a n00b, but exactly how do you set up either the CLI or GUI to run with low priority?

It really isn't needed. The CC isn't active much so running it at normal priority doesn't generally interfer with anything. It should automatically run the project applications at low priority.
