Windows 7: Sluggish performance from app

Sluggish performance from app

The program Volumouse is invaluable for me, but when I wake up my PC from hibernation Volumouse always performs a bit sluggishly, even with the "Run Volumouse in high priority" box checked. I have to restart the program to get it to work properly. Is there a way to somehow reinvigorate a process that's currently running? I contacted the developer regarding this problem but never heard back, and thought I'd ask the community here about this - I tried to find info on this idea of giving a running process some juice like I'm describing but couldn't find any info.

Hopefully someone else will show a much better method:

Maybe you can use a batch file to close and re-open volumemouse.

Open notepad, enter below code, save as volumemouse.bat
(Change volumemouse.exe with correct exe)

Code:
Taskkill volumemouse.exe
start volumemouse.exe
exit
Download and install Windows 7 Suspend/Resume Control - Windows 7 Suspend/Resume Control - Download: Version 2.0.0.1
Set resume action to above batch file.

Haven't used anything like this before, hope it works.

I'll give that a try, thanks for the suggestion.

Volumouse gives me a prompt when I restart it though, what do you call those dialogs, EACs? Might get in the way, but only to find out. Will report on my findings.
