    Rstidle.exe Hogging The Hard Drive

    BackonTrack was pre-installed on my Compaq Netbook. I only found this out when my machine got a Malware problem and I recovered to an earlier backup very easily. Impressed, I downloaded the prog and installed it on my spouse's laptop. (Used to using Ghost at work, Roxio product much easier to use.) Over a year later, the netbook started slowing down. Task Manager tells me 50% CPU usage relates to RstIdle.exe and regedit only shows one instance of this program, within BackOnTrack. Details of my version as folows:Roxio BackOnTrack Serial Number: Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2007 Module Name: Roxio Core Version: 1.3.0 Build: 130B71A, HPN Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2007 Module Name: Disaster Recovery Version: 1.3.0 Build: 130B72C, HPN Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2007 Module Name: Instant Restore Version: 3.8.0 Build: 380B56A, HPI Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2007 Looks like BackOnTrack waits for things to go quiet and then starts preparing details of backup image. Trouble is it doesn't stop working when I start using the machineafter a pause. Does anyone know how to tweak BackOnTrack to go back to sleep when I get back to work on my netbook? P.S. What a shambles to find support via Corel, and how un-user-friendly they are towards people who forked out for products Corel subsequently bought!! No doubt they want me to buy a new product instead, but I'm quite happy with what I've got, thanks.
