    I have a single processor G5 (1.6)

    as an example.

    if i open two safari sites running a flash file.. the window thats selected will run perfectly . but if i select the other window and make that the active window the window i was just on. runs slower. the flash animation runs at like 1/3rd its normal speed.. im fairly confident this is do to thread priority. since im no longer actively using that window it runs slowly

    now does this also happen on a dualie or will two windows have equal thread priority. since each processor can handel one of them..

    im just curious.


    hope im being clear.

    Does the same for me - only "top" window is fast. I also note that neither CPU is even remotely stressed.

    hmm ok interesting.. same here really..

    my cpu is running at around 30% with other processes also running.

    now is there a way to change that so that it doesnt shift thread priority

    Flash does that, if its not in the active window the animation plays at half speed, something like that. I think if anything its to save system resources. Flash has always done this for as long as I can remember. If I remember rightly it does it on windows too.

    I may be wrong but I figured that it was something that they made happen deliberately.
