High CPU usage when kodi 17.1 window not visible
#31
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

Great work, ill start testing it.

Update 12-11-2017 : Perhaps too early, but this is looking good here. The CPU stays down even when i am doing lots of other stuff on the second workspace. Ill monitor it for a while and report back.

Yes, otherwise it wouldn't have Krypton in the file name.

The fix is in Kodi v17.6.

BTW this isn't my work, its FernetMentas, I only backported it to Krypton.
