    Hi I would like to see an option in the games area or somewhere that you
    choose if you are going to be playing games or not and it shuts down and
    starts certain programs. Or it would be nice that since it gets information
    from you about games we install, we could choose certain programs that we
    dont want shut down and other programs and rate them on how much we want to
    keep them to the least when we are playing games and it will shut them down
    if it would improve the game. Also on that It could give us an option once we
    get out of the game it would ask if we want to start everything back up. Also
    for things hat arnt shut down, this is mainly for IM's, it would stop all
    notifications and set us as busy in ims or something if we dont set them to
    shut down.

    A feature along those lines was already announced ~year ago for Vista.

    Whether it will also put you away on IM - not quite sure. IM devs use many
    ways to detect if user is idle, new API to create a common ground for
    communicating the user intent between OS and apps might be needed, or some
    hackery..
