I'm not sure how tied together the GUI and the processes are in foldit, however I think it may be very beneficial, especially to those with slower computers, or that run very long scripts, to have a "run in background option" that would grey the screen, with "stop recipe" and "move to foreground" options displayed prominently on the screen. This would allow script execution without the additional overhead of updating the graphics continuously. Also once a "move to foreground" option has been selected, a "move to background" option would also be nice so that one can simply move it up to see it's current progress, then return it to the background again. Without having to update the GUI I think it would help progress solutions much faster for many people, and ultimately result in better solutions.
