Quite a while ago we tested and began using the technique of making View settings minimal, e.g. View:Line, View Color: Hydro, Deselecting anything that had been selected, View Sidechains: Don't Show (Fast), to increase the speed by minimizing the work of drawing the protein while a recipe is running. Then, the entire protein image is moved off-screen to further minimize the work the CPU does while running a recipe.
Suggestion: Have a View setting which does all of this in one selection, turning off everything that is graphics related and might use CPU cycles to draw something. The goal is to minimize the work that is not productive. At then end of a recipe, a drawing can be made and this setting deselected.
