Hey guys!
I'd really love to have an adjustable switch to reduce CPU usage. Let's say I'm okay with 95% CPU usage when I do normal everyday work but I would like to recuce it to 50% when I use Photoshop or Blender or play a game. It would be nice to have a simple switch to do that. My 16-core CPU can handle a lot so I do not need to switch BOINC computing off when I play games or edit Video or whatever.
Anyone else?
Greetings!

Just clarifying, you would like an option to reduce %CPU/GPU in use to x% when CPU usage is above x% as opposed to suspend when cpu usage above x%?
