OSX Mavericks Tip

For those who can experience performance issues with R2 and R3 betas - as some of you know, there is a new energy saving feature built in Mavericks called App Nap, sometimes it can cause performance issues to Renoise and surely other CPU/RAM/HD/GFX hungry apps. You can disable that App Nap feature per app.

Go to applications folder, right click on the app you need to prevent from App Nap and press Get Info. As you see on the screenshot below there is a check box called “Prevent App Nap”, click it - problem solved.

I had no idea this was even in the OS. Yeesh. Explains a lot, though.

nice hint!
