This is what I understand it to be
ACPI basically means windows shares IRQs for hardware and manages them when nesescary, usually this is ok but occasionally it can cause problems, it is I think dependant on motherboard design. Standard PC you can assign the IRQs manually.

Has anyone tried the REALTIME function available in Task Manager??  I stumbled across the function by right clicking on Mach3 in the Process Manager and a drop down appears where you can set the priority to Realtime.  You also get a message indicating some bad things can happen.  BUT, if this stops MS from interrupting Mach3 's functions during a prolonged run .........

Thats interesting the realtime thing,I just tried it and I'm sure I got a cleaner driver test.
prehaps you should post that as a question to get a better response.
