I was wondering if there was a library or something which provides the capability to Send() to inactive windows, and I know what you're thinking, I could just use ControlSend(); the reason I can't use that in this situation is because I need to hold down keys for specific prolonged periods of time. Also activating the window, Send()ing then de-activating the window isn't really an option here, I need the target window to always be in the background. I've looked around the forums for an adequate amount of time and didn't find anything useful, perhaps because the threads were all 10 years old, nevertheless, if anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
What am I supposed to do, if a program is able for a long time? My program is idle for 20 minutes, before doing a very tiny task, and then starting all over again. I tries using Sleep(), but that literally melts my CPU and pushes them up for 20 to 30%. Permanently checking the time costs too much CPU too. Any other way of doing this? Preferably without taking more than 1% CPU. It also needn't be exactly 20 minutes, everything between 15 and 25 is fine too Thanks!
