Hi,
Is there any way to make it easier to suspend all activity?
Maybe radio buttons in the "commands" column?.?.?
Many times I have to quickly suspend all activity so I can redirect all resources to another task.
Rather than having to open the "activity" drop down menu 3 times in order to click suspend on CPU then GPU and then NETWORK it would be nice to simply click radio buttons.
Just a thought. Crunching away otherwise...
Regards,

That's what the right-click 'snooze' menu item on the notification area icon is for.

Hi,
The snooze feature only controls the CPU and will not shut down GPU or Network. I have tried doing it that way also.
Thanks for the note.

Since GPU tasks require a CPU to run - the GPU science application runs on the CPU, not on the GPU - Suspending the CPU will suspend all activity. As long as there are no outstanding uploads or downloads at that time, there will be no Network activity either. It can take up to 10 seconds for activity to react.

You will see when you snooze CPU that it will automatically snooze GPU as well. However, snooze only works for an hour.
