This mod reduces unnecessary GPU and CPU load by reducing the frame rate automatically when the client window is inactive or you are not operating the Minecraft for a certain period of time (optional from v2.0). As soon as the user performs any operation, it returns to the original frame rate.


  • Reduce FPS automatically under the following conditions.
    • No user operation for the specified time.
    • The game window is inactive or minimized.
  • Suppress sound volume if the game window is inactive or minimized.
  • Display the current FPS on the screen edge.
    Current FPS indication
  • Display CPU usage of client thread. (v1.14~)
    CPU usage indication

Recommended in the following cases

  • When leaving the game running without the operation, for example with automated agriculture and/or industry.
  • When doing other work concurrently with running Minecraft in background.
  • When you want to extend the lifespan of your PC even a little.
  • When you want to save unnecessary power.
  • When the room is hot...


By default, if there is no operation for 5 minutes the frame rate will drop to 10.
Pressing [PAUSE] key reduces FPS manually. (new feature in v1.16)
Pressing [END] key opens the configuration GUI by default.

This is a client-side mod, so it is not necessary to install it on the server.


Feel free to use this mod in any modpacks.
