Quote from: ranko on January 26, 2020, 04:08:39 PMCould you kindly tell me the purpose of "Prevent Sleep" ?I have a certain feeling that this doesn't work.I assigned to MusicBee (a music player) to prevent sleep for "Prevent PC and Display".Then I went away from my PC and the screen turned dark.I thought that the purpose of this setting is, that to keep both on, PC and Display.Many thanks for clarification.This is for PL 126.96.36.199 Beta on Windows 10 1909.It was an upgrade installation and I used OO Win10 Shutup to turn off most of the Win10 features that I dislike (Privacy, etc).

Quote from: ranko on February 09, 2020, 02:55:08 PMGreat this works now many thanks.I see now another issue. Is it right to assume, that I should be able to see all processes if I run PL Pro as a service ?Even as normal user ?I have a Macrium Reflect running and do not see the process which actually performs the backup to be able to apply a high performance profileor to prevent display going into energy saving mode.I sorted for CPU load and I/O, but nothing shows up in both tabs "all processes" and "active processes".I thought that I get through the GUI the ability to control all (relevant) processes.

Quote from: ranko on February 19, 2020, 03:00:33 PMThe status flags for certain optimizations in the "Rules Colum" under "Active Processes" is not being updated properly.I have for MusicBee.exe "ihA0-3".Then I start disabling the optimizations in this order:- Priority Class to Always -> None ... - CPU Affinity to Always -> No default affinity- I/O Priority to Always -> NoneBut "ih" remains although the 3rd action should have deleted it.If you change the CPU affinity then "ih" vanishes, but then you get the same issue with CPU affinity.If you change then Priority Class, then CPU Affinity becomes properly updated, but then you have the issue with Priority Class.It seems to me that the last remaining flag has the issue not becoming updated properly in the Rules column.I first noticed it now in PL 188.8.131.52, but don't know / can't exclude that this was already the case in earlier versions / Betas.My system: Win10 Pro, 1909.Many thanks for fixing this.
Quote from: ranko on February 21, 2020, 02:39:44 AMHi,one process has assigned "Bitsum highest performance" energy profile and also "Induce Performance Mode" has been set,but PL Pro stays at "Balanced".I tried to toggle "induce performance mode" to see, whether this brings a change to performance mode -> Bitsum highest Performance.But when disabling this option I get this error message:"There was an error removing from the automatic Performance Mode list the path '<path_to_the_executeable>'Next I tried to disable a power profile from the process, works and re-assigned Bitsum highest Performance.But what happens now .. Idlesaver seems to activate Energy Saving .. hello whats this ?!Then I try to actively enable Performance mode from the GUI under "Main -> Performance Mode enabled".But nothing happens, the PC stays at energy saving.Remember, for settings I am using now my user directory so permission problems should be excluded.K:\andreas\Eigene Dokumente\process lasso\config\prolasso.ini has a timestamp of this morning, so this should work.These settings have been performed also from the TAB "active processes" if this might be important here as well.Win10 1909, latest Patchlevel, PL Pro 184.108.40.206.
Quote from: ranko on February 25, 2020, 01:13:08 AMStrange, one time after new installation and full reset of option I had a strange issue, of starting a steam game, performance mode became enganged (although I did a full reset of options) and when enabling IDLE saver the energy profile Energy Saving was used although performance mode was set, so what I want to say, Bitsum Highest Performance has been left, although it should not.Then I quit game, steam app and hit another time full reset of options and then it worked all properly.The only strange thing is after full reset (Options: Reset all configurations to default)- Pro Balance is enabled, is that correct after full reset ?- When starting a steam game, Bitsum highest Performance is being enabled, although I didn't configure to do so.- Furthermore, I do not find this option to auto recognize Steam and enter Performance Mode automatically anymore in the GUI after switching to "run as a service".Questions:1. Is the configuration now fully managed in the file K:\me\Eigene Dokumente\process lasso\config\processlasso.ini ?2. Where is the configuration picked up from that enables Performance Mode for steam application ? There is no config file anymore under C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\ProcessLasso C:\Users\me\AppData\Roaming\ProcessLasso3. Is the location of the config file being stored in registry or where ?
