High CPU use at idle

Hi Guys,

Currently have five Rhino5 sessions and two Rhino6 sessions open on my machine, none of which I’ve done any work on/even looked at for about 4 hours.

Just noticed a steady stream of hot air out of my vents on my Lenovo P50, was thinking that was strange when all I’ve been doing is emails today.

Checked on CPU usage and its pegging on 100% - Gsync is one thing but why would my ‘idle’ Rhino sessions be hogging so much CPU?

Cheers

DK

Hello - this does not happen here -

Please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino 6 and copy/paste the results here.

Hi Pascal - I’ll do just that next time I see the issue.

Cheers

Hi DK - so, I take it this is intermittent and not constant? Can you run SystemInfo in Rhino anyway? I’m curious as to what plug-ins might be involved.
