Disconnect child processes from Alfred


Recommended Posts

This has been talked about before but it doesn't have direct support from Alfred. I'd like to have scripts run so that Alfred isn't the parent process.


I start VM instances using an Alfred workflow. As a result, when I look at energy usage in Activity Monitor, Alfred is near the top. Not because of anything Alfred is doing, but because VMWare is using energy. But it's attributed to Alfred because Alfred is the parent process.


I'd like to sever that connection, by, for example, having scripts run as their own parent processes.
