I don't know if others are experiencing this, but unless minimized to the taskbar, UXPin consumes a lot of CPU even though it just sits in the background. Why is that?
The result of this "wasted activity" is a fan making noise like a roaming highway, a PC that runs slow in all other programs/apps, and a battery that's being drained (when not connected, obviously).
The CPU load is about the same on both my five-years old Surface Pro 4, and my two-years old HP 840GS, both with i7 CPU and 16GB RAM.
It is quite fine for UXPin to consume a lot of CPU when I'm actively using it (anything else is a pure benefit). But when there is no activity, the program should just sit back and relax (once everything is synched online).
The funny thing is, when I minimize UXPin to the taskbar, CPU load from UXPin drops like a stone. But my activity with UXPin is identical in both scenarios: none.
So, UXPin: Can you please fix this performance bug? Or rather, stop UXPin from being one...
