>Anyway, what I want is to let my process run in the background, when the load isn't too high. The VM doesn't offer this functionality (maybe it should?) but I am especially after a few processes that I don't want to disturb.
Have you looked at process priorities? You could toggle between low and
medium for a number of processes based on the load. Not as bad as
suspend.. Actually, priorities might be all you need...
