Change Priority based upon time of day

Oct 6, 2014 at 2:39 PM
Is it possible to change the Priority of MCEB based upon time of day? IE: during the day when I am using the computer, keep it on idle, then during the night, punch it up to HIGH? I was trying to find a way to just do this through Windows Scheduler, however, I could not find an easy way to interface with MCEB from the back end.
Thanks,

Can look into it open an new issue and describe in details how you would like it to work. We will see how best to implement it.

Meanwhile a simple workaround would be to use a batch script and the MCEBuddyUserCLI tool included. Use windows scheduler to call the batch scripts at different times. One script can increase the priority and other reduce it.

See the MCEBuddyUserCLI for options on what all can be done (it's pretty easy). You can change priority, pause, resume, stop, start, add files, remove files, enable/disable firewall/upnp etc.
