Reducing CPU usage when emulation window is inactive

A couple of suggestions for features which could allow WinUAE's CPU usage (but not the emulated machine speed) to be reduced when the window is inactive:
  • Ability to specify an alternate refresh (frame skip) setting to be used when the window is inactive. The user could be using another application, but still wants to have the emulation window visible. [Maybe, depending on emulation settings, doing that would increase emulation speed?]
  • When the entire emulated display is obscured by another window, stop refreshing it altogether. Start rendering Amiga frames again once part of the display is revealed. (Note that the emulated display could be completely covered but the status bar below might not be. So you'd still refresh the status bar in that case.)
