Pause while running is not a viable option since most of the programs in
question are running all the time, though load is typically very low. It
makes these machines ideal for dnetc but performance is noticeably impacted
when dnetc is running.

While I have no clue about making DNETC act more like Idle Processes, the
other two scenarios you mention are easily bypassed if you put the name of
the EXE files in the "Pause while running" category. True, there will be no
DNETC activity, but your work related processes will run as designed and
everyone will be happy.
