Perhaps running "renice" on the pid of the process that you want to run at a slower speed might have a close enough effect ? This assumes you're running *nix; I don't believe renice has been ported to Windows.

    You can adjust process priorities directly through the task manager. Unfortunately, doing so wouldn't work for either OS. No matter how low you set the priority, if there is nothing else utilitising the cpu, the even an idle priority task will receive close to 100% cpu if it wants it.
