Windows 7: Disabling Dynamic Process Priorities?

Disabling Dynamic Process Priorities?

So apparently Win 7 changes the process priorities for certain apps depending on whether or not they are in the foreground. This is causing problems for me and forcing some of my apps to play catch up once they are back to the foreground.

I've done some research and apparently the OS does this to conserve system resources, which is well and great, but is there no way to lock a process at a certain priority level regardless of whether or not its visible? If not, is there a way to disable this feature entirely?

That is something an application does. Not something Windows does.
