You may want to think about making your scripts kill -STOP $pid instead of just kill -9. This will stop the processes, but you can also then send the pid a -CONT signal and it will continue right where it left off. The only disadvantage is that they will remain in ram.

::- If you using a vanilla kernel switching to something like a ck
::-kernel might help. Also make sure you might want to turn off stuff like
::-magicdev, xscreensaver, eggcups, etc.. , as these processes check every
::-few seconds to see if, for example a new cd has been inserted into the
::-cdplayer or if a new document has been added to the printer queue. It
::-might not help overall fps but it will smooth gameplay out. I created a
::-launcher on my desktop that when clicked will shut these processes down
::-by executing the command "killall magicdev | killall xscreensaver |
::-killall eggcups". What speed is the cpu you have?
