As long as your computer is doing all the work then Job Timer will keep running, but as soon as it's complete then Job Timer will shut down. This way you can leave your computer running and walk away knowing that Job Timer is still keeping track of the time on the project. The slider bar is to set the CPU Usage from 50 to 90% Job Timer will support Multi core systems up to *4 cores. The higher number of cores you have then set this slider bar lower because multi core machines don't have to work as hard as single core machines.
*6 Core machines are not supported and this feature will not work. (later on this will be fixed when 6 core machines are more common)
