From undoc.txt:

If you are running on a laptop or in a hot room and you want to slow the
program down to reduce heat, then you can add this line to prime.txt:
Throttle=n
where n is the percentage of time the program should run. For example,
Throttle=40 means the program will run 40% and be idle 60% of the time.
The program will run for a few seconds then sleep for a few, and average out at n%. Don't forget to close the program before changing prime.txt.
