On Linux, I like workspaces to organize my work. When I am coding, I typically have a browser on a different workspace to look things up or check on fedi, or maybe even two different ones.

But modern browsers use CPU all the time, even when they are on a separate workspace.

So I wrote a script which can put selected apps to sleep unless they are on the current workspace.

It's a command line script, run it with the -h switch for help:

ws-switch-mon.pl -h

and i know this isn't even really that bad, you can still see some text in those tab titles! XD
