"Auto-Resume"

Aug 2, 2013 at 4:52 AM
Can an "auto-resume" feature be added (if not already)? This would automatically resume (paused) conversion tasks after a pre-selected period of time of no computer activity (e.g., 10 minutes).

Here is why. I cannot use my computer with a conversion running. The conversion process slows my computer down so much that I have to pause it in order to do other things on my computer. Then I forget to resume the conversion when I leave my computer. Then I come back many hours later and find that the conversion has been paused the whole time! So I lose hours of conversion time and my list of programs in the queue gets longer and longer. (I have tried everything I can think of, and I just cannot remember to resume the conversion!!)

It the conversion would resume automatically after a period of computer non-use, it would save a lot of wasted time that could be used to convert.

Thanks for your outstanding program and consideration.

I did think of that but it's very tricky. Instead I have provided an easier method. Set the priority to low and it make mcebuddy a background task and have virtually no impact on the user experience. It works great for me.

Furthermore you can limit the number o processors mcebuddy uses through the expert settings thereby ensuring at least 1 free processor at all times for other tasks. So with priority and CPU selection it pretty much gives you what you need without any complicated pausing and resuming.
