Thanks a lot! CPU usage dropped from 100% to 4% with that setting.
I also will look into DPAKBD.

It would be really good if a helpful FreeDOS developer could add FDAPM 
awareness to more important programs in FreeDOS.

The unlimited CPU usage of FreeDOS programs running in VirtualBox is 
not a virtual or theoretical problem. It is real and it can cause real 
physical damage. My laptop was in fact overheating and shut down 

Until this is solved, people should be recommended to limit at least 
the CPU usage in VirtualBox. But even with 40 percent the laptop gets 
too warm.

Have a nice weekend!

All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
