Below is an extract from the sdk documentation which shows that there are up to 32 different priority levels on windows. Perhaps we need to work out what would be useful to set for a user (e.g. low, normal or high)?


What I do in practice is to go into windows task manager after launching and 
set the priority to LOW. This works very well. I am able to run all my normal 
apps with no noticeable performance impact, and gnubg.exe uses 99% CPU time for 
rollouts whenever I'm idle.

This is the main use I can see people wanting, perhaps a set priority low command is all that is needed. I think most users will be confused by all the different priorities (above normal, highest, idle etc) and I'm not sure they're very useful.
