Quiet Mode

Your Norton product automatically enables Quiet Mode when you perform tasks that require higher utilization of your system resources. When Quiet Mode is turned on, your Norton product suspends the background activities and lets the task use the maximum resources for better performance.

You can choose to set your Norton product to automatically enable Quiet Mode when you do the following tasks:

  • IMAPI 2.0 Disk Burn

  • User-Specified Programs

The following table explains about the various options:

IMAPI 2.0 Disk Burn

When you use an application to burn a CD or a DVD, your Norton product automatically enables Quiet Mode, if the IMAPI 2.0 Disk Burn option is turned on. By default, the IMAPI 2.0 Disk Burn option is turned on. When Quiet Mode is enabled, your Norton product suspends background activities to improve the performance of your disk-burning session. However, your Norton product continues to display alerts and notifications during the session.

Your Norton product supports the following disk-burner applications to turn on Quiet Mode:

  • IMAPI 2.0

  • J. River MEDIA CENTER (version 13.0.125 and later)

Your Norton product turns on Quiet Mode as soon as you start burning a CD or a DVD using an application. Your Norton product turns off Quiet Mode after the disk-burning session is complete. You cannot turn off Quiet Mode during the disk-burning session by turning off the IMAPI 2.0 Disk Burn option in the Settings window.

User-Specified Programs

Your Norton product automatically turns on Quiet Mode when it detects or a disk-burning session. In addition, you can manually add the programs for which you want your Norton product to turn on Quiet Mode to the Quiet Mode Programs list. When your Norton product detects a running instance of a program that you added in the list, it automatically turns on Quiet Mode. When Quiet Mode is turned on, your Norton product suspends the background activities but does not suppress alerts and notifications.

You can also add or remove a running program to the Quiet Mode Programs list.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
