How can we improve Bitcoin/Litecoin/Dogecoin Miner?

Make a cooldown cycle

example cooldown 30 minutes
You mine bitcoins 30 minutes,the miner wait 30 minutes to mine again to evitate heating up to much,you can select if you want the cooldown or not

    All the comments here are valid - we have been reworking a lot of the internal scheduling code. Hopefully over the next couple months we'll be able to have better fine-tuning of controls so users can set what % of CPU is used for mining.

    The best way to help your cpu is simply to maintain a constant heat so that its physical state doesn't change too much. If the heat that is generated by the processor is too high, the best way to deal with that is to go into your power management scheme in your settings/control panel. There is an option under advanced settings to lower the maximum and minimum processor states. Another option is to just stick a cooling pad under your laptop, or leave a bit of space around your pc case. For me the best option is to probably stop resting hot coffee cups on it. Having looked at system resource use at the moment it seems that cpu usage is at only about half of maximum for this app.

    No really good idea. Heating up and cooling is poison for boards. The device is even broken faster.
