I'm afraid there's a timing issue.
At the time FUMS detects a running game, TIR link attempts may already have taken place.
In the same way, BoS will already have parsed the cfg file.

Okay, I see. The real problem is the cfg file IMO, as the rest (TIR, etc) can be started even when the game is already loading/running (at least in my experience). A possible workaround could be if the cfg file were reset to custom values when the game process quits. Just musing. Anyway, thank you for giving it a thought.

Hi SAS~Storebror,

First things first: Big thank you for this little app. I've found the idea very useful.
I have one question though: I'm using balanced power plan as default, and chose to change it to Hiperf while playing Il-2.
Looking at the log, it seems that everything is working fine, except that, after quitting the game, there are two changes in sequence on my Power Plan:
1st - it is reset back to Balanced (which is expected).
2nd - then, after a few seconds, the "default" power plan is reset to Hiperf.

There are no other monitored processes (i.e., games) running, and it is valid to note that the log entry points to "Default powerplan" (instead of simply "Powerplan", like it does when changing for start/end of a game).

I let the FUMS log window opened on my second monitor and the last lines of FUMS log were as follows, after just starting and quitting IL-2:
...
Priority for Steam set to idle
Priority for SteamService set to idle
Priority for steamwebhelper set to idle
Priority for steamwebhelper set to idle
Priority for steamwebhelper set to idle
Priority for steamwebhelper set to idle
Priority for Steam set to idle
Priority for Il-2 set to AboveNormal
Powerplan set to High Performance
Priority for steamwebhelper set to Idle
Powerplan reset to Balanced
Default Powerplan changed to High performance  <-- this !

My config is below. Is something wrong with it? I've changed the check interval to 1 second.

The line "Default Powerplan changed to High performance" denotes that some other application (not FUMS!) changed the powerplan to High performance while FUMS is running.
In return, FUMS assumes that this setting should become the new default and that's what it tells in the log.
At this time FUMS doesn't change anything on the powerplans at all, it just notices that someone else changed it.
I'd recommend to check which other application was messing with your powerplan(s) there. It wasn't FUMS, that much is for sure.

Thanks for clarifying things up.
Well, now I'm even more curious. Will investigate and post back if I found what's going on.
Cheers!
