[Suggestion] Automatic pausing of backups when high CPU usage?

Would be very nice if there was a preference to not  run backup if CPU usage is high etc. If a backup job runs while I'm gaming, the game will always lag for a few seconds while my backup HDD starts up. It's of course possible to manually disable all jobs and re-enable them later but I've noticed I often forget to re-enable them.

Just a minor inconvenience, but would still make a nice feature if at  all possible.

Let me see what I can do.

PS. You can rig something up with a custom perfmon event that gets emitted on CPU usage crossing a threshold and a task with Task Scheduler that disables/enables all bvckup2 jobs in response to that.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately after an hour of googling it seems I'm not quite tech savvy enough to implement it that way.
