    I don't think that you can. The solution that I found was to use the task scheduler to periodically run a Powershell script.

    Get-Process -Name notepad | ForEach { $_.PriorityClass = "BelowNormal"}      # or use 'Idle' 
    
    
    

    Set the task to run as the system account and define various triggers like 'logon of any user' or at a specific time every day. You might have to add a Start-Sleep to wait until the exe starts during the user logon process.
