Example text

While the Task Manager's thread is suspended, Windows NT doesn't assign it to any CPU for processing, which allows lower-priority threads to execute. However, once the user does press Ctrl+Esc, Windows NT wakes up the Task Manager's thread. If any threads that have a lower priority level are executing, Windows NT preempts those threads immediately and allows the Task Manager to run. The Task Manager responds by displaying a dialog box that lists all the running applications.

This happens only when a thread creates a new thread that has a higher priority than its own. If the priority 5 thread creates another priority 5 (or lower) thread, the system allows the currently running priority 5 thread to complete its time slice.
