you can use WinWait to detect when your game starts.

it depends what your script does, if it's a bunch of hotkeys then I would use a timer

Code: Select all

#persistent
#singleinstance Force

SetTimer, Check, 500

Check:
If WinActive("ahk_exe notepad.exe") and (!A_IsSuspended)
	Suspend, On
If !WinActive("ahk_exe notepad.exe") and (A_IsSuspended)
	Suspend, Off
return

!a:: ;alt+a
MsgBox, Hello, World!
return

If all you need is to selectively disable certain hotkeys why go with through all this ceremony of setting up timers, simply declare your hotkeys inside your #If directive.

If you need to pause a script thats a different thing entirely, so which one is it?
