Process Lasso is NOT yet another task manager. It is a process priority optimization and system automation utility. Priority optimization, affinity optimization, core optimization, automated rules, automated power profiles; you name it, and Process Lasso does it!
Process Lasso’s most popular feature is the unique process optimization technology called ProBalance (Process Balance) that will improve your PC’s responsiveness and stability by making intelligent dynamic adjustments to the priority class of background processes. Windows, by design, allows programs to monopolize your CPU without sufficient restraint — leading to hangs, micro-lags, and delays in your keystroke or mouse actions. ProBalance intelligently adjusts process priorities so that badly behaved processes won’t negatively impact the responsiveness of your PC. This has been proven to be safe and very effective, as you can see from our CPUEater demo.
In addition to ProBalance, there are countless features allowing the user to take full automated control of the processes on their PC. You can have a wide range operations performed, or settings applied, each time a process is run. Core optimization technologies allow you to choose on what CPUs/cores a process should run, as well as what their CPU priority class and I/O priority class should be. You can also disallow specified processes from running, log all processes run, and even set various other process rules. These rules, among many others, include automatically restarting or terminating a process after it reaches some CPU or memory threshold.
In more recent versions, a new Gaming Mode with an optimized power profile allows you to dynamically switch to a super-high-performance mode, doing away with any power saving CPU bottlenecks. We’ve also added an intelligent RAM optimizer and much more.
- Gaming Mode 2.0 – Dynamically disable power-saving features of your CPU, such as core parking and frequency scaling. Includes built-in Steam game detection.
- SmartTrim RAM Manager – The first ever half-way intelligent attempt at RAM management. Selectively applies working set limits and acts intelligently (as opposed to bludgeoning the working set of all running processes, as most supposed ‘ram optimizers’ do).
