I read, that the source of CPU (over)heating problems under original
MS/PC-DOS was the fact, that its "waiting for key"-loop (or however it
is called) didn't set CPU idle, when user (or application) was idle.
For example: when the computer has been left with the cursor blinking
in the command line.

I'm wondering, whether this misfeature has been fixed in FreeDOS?
