cjd@...
 

There is a useful utility program for the Mac,Peek-a-boo available
as shareware from
http://www.clarkwoodsoftware.com/peekaboo/indexcontent.html,

which allows you to increase/decrease the priority of processes.

Giving Praat High priority can substantially speed up long
computationally intensive processes such as the analysis of
many files using a script.

the down side is that all other simultaneous process are VERY
slow!
