I am using several application, which are really slow. They will stay unresponsive for between 1 second and up to five minutes and I do not have any good way of predicting their response times. This means that I will do other work and from time to time check whether the application has responded. Needless to say, this wastes a lot of time. Therefore, it would be great if there was a sound whenever the application responded. Because I cannot modify the application, the sound would have to come from a tool, which monitors the applications and whenever an application as not responded for more than, say 5 seconds, it will make a sound when it becomes responsive again.
There are several ways, in which the applications can become unresponsive. In one, the mouse will turn into an hour-glass whenever it is over the application, but task manager states that it is responding, in others, task manager will state that they are not responding.
Does such a tool exist?
