1. Navigate to your server's FTP and double click on the "PB" folder.
2. Download your "pbsv.cfg" file and open it.
3. Set the values as I have them listed below:

PB_SV_Sleep 400 [Force PB to sleep() longer, therefor reducing bandwidth requirements and client overhead]
pb_sv_AutoSs 1 [Enables autoss]
pb_sv_AutoSsFrom 500 [Minimum # of seconds to wait before requesting next ss]
pb_sv_AutoSsTo 1200 [Maximum # of seconds to wait before requesting next ss]
pb_sv_SsDelay 10 [Maximum delay client waits before capturing screenshot]
pb_sv_ssSrate 2
pb_sv_ssheight 240
pb_sv_sswidth 320

The settings above are no guarantee that this will make autoss better but it does ease up the sudden spike a server will see when taking and processing the screen shots.
