I decided to play Civilization II today.

It's an old game... they probably didn't bother actually sleeping when waiting for you to do something but instead continuously check to see if you hit a key or something. Just set it to a lower priority so it doesn't interfere with whatever else you're running. Note that you'll have to set the priority of "ntvdm.exe" since you can't set it directly for "civ2.exe".

I still play that game, played it for 5 hours straight the other day. One of the best games ever made.

I actually installed it 2 weeks ago, didn't catch my interest this time though. Even though I did have a very well functioning war machine :D
