I'm not in the same cohort as our users. I don't game, have performance sensitive tasks running, or need additional automation or control. I do make use of ProBalance, Performance Mode automation, and sometimes IdleSaver. Otherwise, at any given time, my personal configuration is just some set of tests to ensure proper functionality.

I've just done a clean install of W11 2H22 & am enjoying finding new problems that prevent me doing anything effectively (toolbars, context menu - Why do you really need them?)
I have discovered that PL can no longer prevent sleep (Hibernation is definitely off) as when I am running disallow sleep listed procs W11 will still default to sleep after xx mins regardless. I actually want W11 to sleep sometimes just not when the PC is doing sth.
You'd create one configuration (set of rules) for when your game is running, and another for when it isn't. Then you'd setup the switcher to trigger when your game(s) start. Note that you may need to set rules to undo actions made by the opposing config profile, since changes aren't automatically reverted when a config profile is switched to.
Admittedly, this solution could be easier to use, and we have planned enhancements related to this functionality that may come in the future.

I hope this is the right place to ask a question like this. I use Process Lasso on my gaming/media server rig, and what I have essentially done is limit Plex and Handbrake to using 8 of the 16 cores on my Ryzen 1700 so that my gaming isn't too adversely affected when either programs are in use. What I was wondering is, is it possible to allow both programs to use all cores when I'm not gaming, and then automatically have the CPU affinities lowered when a game is started and performance mode is activated? Even in performance mode, gaming performance tanks for a bit when the Plex transcoder spikes if all cores are activated, but when I'm not gaming there's no need for any such limits. I know that you can set ProBalance to limit CPU affinity once a certain threshold on -that- program is met; what I'm wondering is if you can do this for a program when ANOTHER program hits that threshold, e.g. "limit CPU affinity of this particular program if another program is activating performance mode"?
Any chance you'd mind posting your personal Process Lasso settings?
I'm curious how you, the developer, set and utilize Process Lasso, and I would use it as a reference comparison with my own settings (and/or others'/the default settings).
I get everyone's needs are different and one's settings won't automatically be the best for all. Just curious how you specifically set/tweak your PL for day-to-day use, as it could reveal settings or features I'm not yet utilizing, or under-utilizing, or perhaps set suboptimally.
It'd provide a jumping off point for me researching these settings, differences, and features further via the forum.
The reverted green is perfect IMO (the more vibrant Matrix/lime); it's the green I was attempting to get back to.
Another color suggestion I'd suggest experimenting with is the text color on the dark theme: the white text is a bit too "high-contrast-y". A better look IMO would be how Adobe does it with their products' GUIs, such as Photoshop (comparison pic attached). You can see their font color is a slightly muted off-white color, which blends better with the dark theme.
Obviously no big deal either way, it doesn't impact PL usage of course. I'd experiment with this myself however each time I try to change colors, PL changes the entire theme to "Light".

I'd like to know when choosing Induce Performance Mode there is a pop up that appears that says it will run the program on the p cores does this mean my e cores do not get used or does it priotize p cores then e cores?
Also Induce Performance Mode is a per application setting what about Performance Mode? Is that a global all application setting?
Love the program been using it for years. I've just upgraded to the 13900KS so want to utilize this program properly
