i find this project quite interesting and i have been trying it since yesterday.
But i have some problems:
--> i run muon.exe and not the background or the commandline version of muon because I think it more beautiful lol.
nevertheless, i think that the commandline version is faster...
So, i run muon.exe but it is running in fullscreen and i would like to do many others things when i'm running muon so how can I reduce the DOS window but not close and quit muon?
--> i am on a ladtop and when i'm running muon or any other grid computing program, my cpu is using at 100%.
On a desktop, it isn't a big problem but on a ladtop yes !
The temperature is increasing quickly and my ventilators become mad lol
So do you know any means to reduce or to block the cpu usage to a certain % ?
Thx a lot for the answers
(excuse my bad english: i'm fench)
You must stop muon1 and then start it in cmdline mode. Click om cmdline and it will start in a dos window, but you can minimise it and run it in the taskbar. If you will close it you can use task manager.
Hope it helps.

|to switch between muon1.exe full screen and other programmas use the "alt-tab" keys|
the problem with the other..... i don't know

|About your second problem:|
The only way i know is to use a tool to limit the amount of cpu-cycles used by Muon. I only ever found one piece of software that does this.
I never used it myself, but i understand this works perfectly. (i keep it bookmarked for a hot summer )
|thank you for threadmaster, i will test it, i think it's what i was looking for.|
i still have the first problem.
I know "alt tab" but it isn't what i search.
I search a way to keep the graphic version on my screen but not in full screen. I just want to reduce the window, not necessary to put it on the systemstray. I have tried "alt enter" keys but it seems have no effect...
|As far as I know, what you want is not possible.|
|The only time I run the graphical version is when I'm trying to recruit someone to run DPAD. It shows graphically what I can only vaguely describe. I stopped running DPAD on my laptop long ago. Didn't like the fan running all the time, didn't like the super short battery life and it was burning my leg.|
|Oddly someone asked for a "CPU % throttle" feature that was going to go in way back in version 3.06 or something, but no-one else showed any interest at the time. I was just recently thinking about it again and assumed that modern CPUs have thermal throttling built into them so won't overheat laptops. Obviously I was wrong!|
I can either build this into the next version as a config.txt option, or put a link to threadmaster under the download on the website...
