Right now I have 4 cpu's and I set it up to run all 4 but now it runs too hot even with fans on it.
I set it to run just 50% of them but still all 4 still fire up.
where do I set it so it just runs 2 ?

If using local preferences, make sure to set this there. Local preferences override web preferences.

Also set Activity to run based on preferences. When set to run always, preferences are ignored.

well I did what you said but still the same. I wonder maybe I have the preferences wrong?

When I first set this one up at first it asked me who many I wanted to use but I don't see that anymore.
