TT16 very slow unless it's the front app

Question

I'm using an iMac with tons of RAM. Currently running High Sierra, but I had this problem as far back as Yosemite. Just burning a regular old CD Toast slows to a crawl if I work in any other app. Like, after an hour or so I'll remember that disc I was burning and see that it's at 28%. If I keep TT as the front app, the pace picks up and the burn finishes. I have two burners but it doesn't make any difference which one I use.

The issue may be the App Nap feature (in 10.9 Mavericks (2013) and later). That feature would put ‘inactive’ applications (i.e. not-visible apps) in a sleep mode (mostly to safe power consumption), similar to iOS.
For a disk-burning application like Toast, you may want different behavior. To exclude any specific application from the App Nap feature, you can tick the box Prevent App Nap in the Get Info box (in the General section) in Finder for the application.
