CPU Usage 100%


Recommended Posts

Hello All!


I shouldn't have spoken about 46,000 taking 6 minutes. Now all of a sudden my computer freezes trying that very same program!


My CPU usage goes to 100% and locks everything else out. Freezes the system completely.


And yes, it is Macro Express. I delete everything else that is running leaving Macro Express as the last program.


What can I do? I restarted my computer a few times, but to no avail.

OK Kevin!


I never saw that webpage before! It has some interesting things. I am going to experiment with the text to voice stuff. Interesting!


Nevertheless, I experiemented with just your average everday repeat with folder and looked at the task manager to see how much my CPU jumped after using tweakme3. I set it for 1. So it's the lowest it can go.


I tried a Repeat with folder on over 46,000 files. The CPU jumped from 4% to 44% and then came down.


What is so different with that and with this?

This macro immediately jumps to 100% and doesn't let go. For what it's worth, there isn't much to this macro, correct?


Any ideas from your knowledgeable mind would help.






By the way, why can't we send keystrokes to hidden controls? Is that something in the making?

No dice. It doesn't slow down the CPU to a lower number.


Now, I went my first post and Scaspar gave me an alternative http://pgmacros.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=3342.


I didn't go through the entire macro line-by-line, but I noticed right away that the CPU resources were not even affected by his. Why?


By the way, thanks Scaspar. You actually helped a lot.


But this question goes to Kevin and the staff at ME.


Can you test these two and tell me why does one clog the system resources and why the other does not even yawn?


And don't tell me that it was my tough luck! :)


Well, knowing my luck, I was the one that came up with mine!


Can you experiment with this Kevin or anyone? Why?
