limit cpu usage

8 posts in this topic

i created this simple script that can type for you the same lines over and over...

but the problem is that it takes up way too much cpu.

is there a way to limit this?

sleep (10)

yah, as TheOnlyOne said, you need to make some sleeps between the loops >_

for something more fancy, see SendKeyDelay option. I assume you are using send.


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.

Hi,

you may increase your sleeptime:

sleep (20) or sleep (50). Just change it and see what happens....

i tried using sleep, but it still takes up alot of cpu!

and yes, im using send =P

oh, and im wondering if it has to do with my loop....

my code is something like:

Func enter()
While 1
    send($text)
    send("{enter}")
    If _IsPressed("23") Then
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
    Sleep(50)
WEnd
HotKeySet("^v", "enter")
EndFunc

if i change the loop to a set amount, would it go faster? or should i use adlib (i don't really get adlib...)

try adding Sleep(100) right before "send($text)" and see how it goes >_<

and do the same to any other loop you may have as main, considering what you posted was nothing but A function :(
