I would like to see some separate settings for when the pc is idle vs. in use.
In general the preferences aren't very clear so there may be a way to do this but I haven't been able to make it work like I would like it to.
I have 2 badass ASUS G75VW laptops that need to run autocad during the work day and are idle the rest of the time. Even when running Acad they have plenty of resources left over for crunching. I currently change the cpu settings on both machines twice a day so they can run all out when idle and slow the crunching down enought that acad doesn't lag when I am working during the day.
exclusive apps is all or nothing, so is setting day/time override.
