This should help to view the process hierarchy ;).

Coming soon in v11.0 beta...

Initially, the items won't be collapsable. However, that will also be done, in time.

Process Lasso / Re: Github?

We do already use a private Github repo for issue tracking. I've considered either making that public or creating a distinct public repo for issue tracking, but don't have plans to do so at this time. I'll keep it in mind!

Sure, we can add a keyboard shortcut for the filter edit box. I've logged that request.

Coincidentally, a parent process column is already planned for the next release, so it'll also be added.

Process Lasso / Github?
Last post by Coldblackice - July 19, 2022, 01:51:35 AM
Given the notice saying these forums are mostly in archive mode, would you consider putting up a repo on Github for Process Lasso? Non-code repo, obviously, but as a localized, frequented place where issues/requests/discussions could be posted?

It would be much easier to find than the forums currently are. Just an idea!

Would it be possible to add a keyboard shortcut for jumping to the filter box input in the program list, e.g. CTRL-F? I use it often but by clicking in the list on processes, it necessitates having to click back and forth between the input box.

Also, would it be possible to add a "Parent" column in the process list? Unless I'm overlooking a way to see the parent of processes.

Process Lasso / IdleSaver not working? Blame M...
Last post by Autumner - July 16, 2022, 10:30:18 AM
Hello everyone,

Rant to follow. So, IdleSaver stopped working with no apparent reason. First tried changing lots of settings in Process Lasso, even resetting them to default - to no avail.

After some research, I unearthed an ancient Windows issue, which for some reason will disable Power saving/screensavers etc. if you simply have a USB Joystick/Gamepad connected.

I then remembered recently removing a couple of joysticks from the USB Hub and connecting them directly to the PC. Long story short: disabling the joysticks automagically restored IdleSaver operation (using USBDeview as described here).

Why aren't they fixing this after all this time? Unless there's a reason for USB Joysticks to always keep the system alert?  :o

Quote from: Jeremy Collake on July 08, 2022, 12:53:25 PMI believe all AMD stock power plans allow frequency scaling below base, making use of the power saving P-states. However, that may vary depending on the CPU.

You can confirm with ParkControl. If 'Freq Scaling' is disabled, then the power saving P-states are de-facto disabled.

 :) Got it, well P-States is one less thing I have to worry about then. This one guy I've been talking to said disabling P-States fixed the stuttering in his games, so it does cause problems. I think Microsoft needs to come out with a new Windows edition that disables all power saving features by default, including stuff like HPET, Network Discovery among other things that are known culprits for performance issues. Call it "Windows 10/11 Gaming Edition".
