So, we have a start program option but i really would like to see a stop program one.

As in, whenever i start an application listed in my AWM settings, have another application being terminated.

In my case: i use AHK very often but some of the game i play are very sensitive to that kind of software so, in this case, when i start x game, terminate AHK.

Instead of starting the game directly from AWM, you could start an .exe which contains a script that first exits autohotkey (if AHK means autohotkey) and then starts the game. With AutoIt it would look like this:

Code
If ProcessExists("autohothey.exe") Then
   ProcessClose("autohothey.exe")
   PocessWaitClose("autohothey.exe")
EndIf
Run("PathToYourGame\YourGame.exe")
Exit

With Autohotkey itself, it should look similar.

You have to convert the script into an .exe, which is also possible with AHK2exe.

I'm not starting anything "directly" from AWM, the game only has an entry in the specific settings of AWM for window size etc.
So yeah, i could use an external script but it would be much easier if there was a stop program the same way there is a start program option :)
