Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

=====================

It would be better if you perform the defragmentation utility tool in the active part of the Windows Operating System. This would make sure that the defragmentation process would run smoothly and properly for faster defragmentation.

    Yes it is, you can write scripts with WMI filters attached to them that can monitor hardware and wait specific periods to start a task based on performance levels over time. It won't be easy, but it can be done. I would think that C Sharp might be your weapon of choice on this one.
