Hi. I'd like to ask for an enhancement if possible for next/future versions.

In current version "Usage limits" is one and for all. However I'd like it to be separated in two, for "active computer" or "idle computer/screensaver".

This way, I could define something like:
- when in use, use 75% of CPUs && 50% of CPU time
- when not in use use 100% of CPUs && 100% of CPU time

The idea is that I can run boinc when i'm also working, with some restrictions that won't affect the type of work I do, but when in screensaver mode, I can let boinc run at full throttle.

Today, it's just nothing or all with the option to "suspend boinc when in use"...

Thanks!
