Process Lasso v6

Process Lasso is NOT yet another task manager; it is a process, power, and CPU optimization and automation utility. One of Process Lasso's most popular features is a unique technology called ProBalance (Process Balance) that can improve your PC's responsiveness and stability during high CPU loads. Windows, by design, allows programs to monopolize your CPU without sufficient restraint -- leading to hangs and micro-lags. ProBalance intelligently adjusts the priorities of running programs on-demand so that badly behaved processes are less likely to negatively impact the responsiveness of your PC. It does this NOT by raising process priorities, but instead by temporarily lowering the priorities of background processes that may be interfering with PC responsiveness. It can also perform other operations on these processes, such as adjusting their I/O priorities or CPU affinities.

Another popular feature is called Energy Saver. It switches the active Power Profile after you have gone idle for mere seconds (configurable). This allows you to run your PC in the High Performance power profile, yet conserve power when you aren’t active.

In addition to these, there are countless features allowing the user to take full automated control of the processes on their PC. You can have a wide range operations performed, or settings applied, each time a process is run, or when it exceeds a threshold. You can choose at what priority processes should run, and which CPUs should be assigned to them. You can also disallow certain processes from running, log all processes run, automatically restart processes when they terminate, limit the number of instances, and much more. You can even indicate processes that should induce entrance into specific power profiles and/or prevent the PC from sleeping. A gaming and multimedia mode even allows for easy process priority optimization for high priority applications.

Version 6 continues to add new power and process setting automation features. User Interface improvements have also improved both the look and efficiency of the graphical user interface. Best of all, the program has only gotten leaner over time! Lastly, new CPU Parking control completes the package.

When choosing which columns to show you can only change 1 column at a time. You should be able to check off as many as you want at the same time.

Set 'Show Balloons' on by default for new users. By default, I think the 'Show Balloons' option should be enabled. This way, idiot new users like me can more easily see that the software is actually doing something.

Show disk io?

It would also be nice to see a disk io usage column and graph line in the main page. My only reason for this would be to see if disk io is causing the system to be slow instead of cpu or memory...

When hovering mouse over the system tray icon, show the name of any processes which are temporarily being lowered.

Make an 'Options' dialogue window from all the checkable options in the menus. That way, one could iterate through all the settings easily, it wouldn't be this much of a hassle.

Track recently dead processes

Tracking processes for 15 to 30 seconds after they die would all you to find programs that overuse resources but are gone before you can get the GUI started to find them.

have an option to auto trim virtual memory after certain duration. It would be useful for applications which are having a memory leak.

Well, I used process lasso to trim virtual memory while playing prototype 2 which had a memory leak. Unfortunately the developer was shut down before any update was released. While playing the game, Ram usage quickly peaks to 90pc of ram. Hence I...

Option to click more than 1 menu commands, without the menu closing

Option to click more than 1 menu commands, without the menu closing. There are many commands to use and it gets frustrating. Also it would be nice if it could remember and move the cursor at the last menu command used.

add management traffic LAN and internet (like NetBalancer for internet)

NetBalancer is a traffic shaper and system network balancer, only for Internet. Why doesn't make only one soft to manage the speed of computer (like Process Lasso now) and the speed of the internet (like NetBalancer) + the speed of LAN (nobody...

Throttle network i/o to prevent large, frequent A/V downloads from halting everything else

A/V download process use little CPU, so PL ignores it.

Why, despite the fact I have set the browser to lower priority than others, it is still able to hog the CPU sometimes?

Why, despite the fact I have set the browser to lower priority than others, it is still able to hog the CPU sometimes and I can't even set focus to another window (even the one of process manager)?
