The third button from the left at the bottom of Throttle-Stop's dialog box says "Turn On." However, at least some of Throttle-Stop's functionality seems always to be on. For instance, I can change the max attainable GHz of my CPU, as revealed in the Task Manager / Performance display, by toggling the checkbox labeled "Disable Turbo" in Throttle-Stop, and that functionality seems to work whether the "Turn On" button has been pressed or not. The only thing I found different is the message in the title bar. If "Turn On" hasn't been pressed, then the title bar at the top of Throttle-Stop's dialog box says "TS 8.70 - Monitoring." If "Turn On" has been pressed, then the title bar says "Throttle Stop 8.70."

So I'm curious: what does the "Turn On" button do? I know, it turns on throttle stop :) But what functionality actually gets turned on and off with that button?

In the early days of development, some users were scared to give ThrottleStop a try so it was a way to get the timid to try ThrottleStop.

The Turn On button only controls 3 things. Clock Modulation, Chipset Clock Modulation and Set Multiplier. On many recent CPUs, you do not need to use any of these ThrottleStop features. For many users, the Turn On / Turn Off button is obsolete so it might be removed someday.

Then the color of ThrottleStop's icon in taskbar does not matter?
