This can work great if you use certain apps on a regular basis at a regular time, such as checking Facebook or Twitter when you wake up in the morning. Background App Refresh can be a drain on the battery life of your i Pad.
I have a function that does a lot of moving and outputting of text into the current vim buffer, and when I run it, seeing all that happening at blinding speed is a bit disconcerting.
First, let us take a look why people may want to turn off Windows updates.
With Windows 8.1 and earlier versions, we had Windows Update giving us options to: These options provided a way to defer updates until we had enough time to download and install them or to have them downloaded automatically and then install them at a time we wish.
How can I freeze the screen until the function's done? Make Choices() :let save_view = winsaveview() let start = line('.') "Locate previous *choice. This is to avoid finding *choice blocks nested in another *choice block.)" return -1 endif "return getline(target_line_num, target_line_num 4) "Locate end of *choice block "echo getline(choice Start Line, choice Start Line 2) let choice End Line = search('^\S.*', 'W') "End is first line that starts with non-whitespace "If above search fails, might be at bottom of buffer if choice End Line == 0 let choice End Line = search('^$', 'W') "End is first empty line endif "Now go back up to the last *goto let choice End Line = search('*goto', 'b W') "Get the entire *choice block and put it in goto Block let goto Block = getline(choice Start Line, choice End Line) "Make label Array (contains all labels to goto) let label Array =  for cur in goto Block if match(cur, '*goto') !
(b=backwards, W=nowrap, n=do Not move cursor) let choice Start Line = search('^*choice', 'b W') if ! = -1 "echo 'cur: 'let cur Parsed = matchlist(cur, '*goto \(\S\ \)') "echo cur Parsed if len(cur Parsed) 1 let cur Label = cur Parsed else echo 'ERROR: Bad *goto ('')' return -1 endif call add(label Array, cur Label) endif endfor "Restore window to what it looked like (in case the searches scrolled "it) call winrestview(save_view) "Make newline after choice block if needed if strlen(getline(choice End Line 1)) 0 echo 'big line: '.getline(choice End Line 1) call cursor(choice End Line, 1) put='' endif call cursor(choice End Line 1, 1) "Put the new label blocks let skipped Labels = '' let num New Labels = 0 for cur in label Array if !
But it may not be met by many servers out there where 8MB or 16MB of video memory is still the norm.
The reason why Splashtop needs more video memory than traditional remote desktop tools is we use a video-based approach to encode and transmit the screen.
I turn off Screen Updating & Enable Events at the beginning and back on at the end for most of the macros that I run individually.But perhaps there is another way to make your function run with less screen updates?It would be helpful if you posted your function ;-)*choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super *choice test2 test3 super ... There is no option to turn off Windows Updates using the Control Panel or Settings app in Windows 10, as it used to be with earlier versions of Windows.But there is a workaround to disable or turn off Windows Update in Windows 10, that we’ll talk about in this post.
