Less CPU usage

5 posts in this topic

I made this to monitor a windows title and to show a popup when it changes to a certain one. The problem is thatt it uses too much CPU power, around 90%. Does anybody have a suggestion how to do this in a better way please.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Local $SplashFlag = 0

While 1
    If WinExists("[CLASS:AGENT_DESKTOP]") Then
        Local $title = WinGetTitle("[CLASS:AGENT_DESKTOP]", "")
        Select
            Case $title = "Not Ready - Cisco Agent Desktop"
                If $SplashFlag = 0 Then
                    SplashTextOn("PhoneCheck", "CISCO AGENT NOT READY!", -1, 150, -1, -1, 32, "", 24)
                    $SplashFlag = 1
                EndIf
            Case $title = "Logout - Cisco Agent Desktop"
                If $SplashFlag = 0 Then
                    SplashTextOn("PhoneCheck", "CISCO AGENT NOT READY!", -1, 150, -1, -1, 32, "", 24)
                    $SplashFlag = 1
                EndIf
            Case Else
                If $SplashFlag = 1 Then
                    SplashOff()
                    $SplashFlag = 0
                EndIf
        EndSelect
    Else
        ShellExecute("C:\Program Files\Cisco\Desktop\bin\agent.exe")
        WinWait("[CLASS:AGENT_DESKTOP]")
    EndIf
WEnd

chriswaldeck,

Add a Sleep(10) in the While...WEnd loop to give the CPU a chance to draw breath. You should always add a Sleep to any tight loop unless there is a GUIGetMsg/TrayGetMsg command in there - those 2 functions have a built-in pause. :)

How does one ass a sleep exactly? :D


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

BrewManNH,

It is an old English term for missing your well-deserved repose by driving to an airport a fair distance away to collect your better half and on the way back finding the motorway (interstate) blocked by an accident forcing you to take to small roads clogged by large HGVs (semis) which means you do not get to bed until 4AM after far to long behind the wheel :D

But thanks for asking - after a postprandial "folding of the hands to sleep" I feel almost human again. ;)
