doPause is a lightweight software application developed specifically for helping you automatically pause music upon locking your computer. It works with audio players like Spotify, iTunes, and Microsoft Windows Media Player. Plus, the program is able to automatically un-pause the music player once you unlock your desktop.
You can take advantage of the utility’s portability status and drop it on pen drives or other removable devices so you can carry it with you all the time. No administrative privileges are needed for running it. Plus, you may opt for opening it directly from the storage device.
In order to gain access to the GUI you simply need to double-click on the executable file because you do not have to go through an installation process. Since it does not alter your Windows registry and leave other setup files behind on the host PC, you may get rid of it with the aid of a simple deletion task of the EXE file that you have downloaded from the Internet.
As soon as you run it, you can find doPause hiding in the system tray. There are no configuration settings hidden under the hood. You can right-click on the tray icon in order to enter the license key, exit the tool, and access the ‘About’ section.
A help manual is not embedded in the package, only a few details about the application’s capabilities are revealed in the ‘About’ panel. The pausing/un-pausing process is accomplished automatically, without user’s intervention.
Tests have pointed out that doPause carries out tasks quick. It is not a resource hog so you may keep it running in the background without having to worry that it hampers the overall performance of the computer.
To sum things up, doPause offers a simple and efficient software solution for automatically pausing or un-pausing music upon desktop lock or unlock actions. The intuitive way of operating it makes it suitable for less experienced users and professionals alike.
