High CPU usage when kodi 17.1 window not visible

I have the same issue with my iMac. After 2 minutes the temp starts to rise.

The same issue occurs with Kodi 7.3 and 7.4 RC1.

I did some reading about this issue with more open workspaces and CPU load, and guess what ! I found something that kind of solved the high CPU issue with my setup.

Turn on : accessibility > display > reduce transparency

Just tried the latest v18. Same thing here. When the KODI window is on some other screen and not visible it still uses 25% cpu
