VW 10 uses all my CPU; is it OK?


Recommended Posts

I and the rest of the tech support team and engineering staff understand they are getting hot.

Unfortunately, this is not an overnight fix. They are currently working on this problem.

I should also note, there are only a handful of certain powerbooks/notebooks experiencing this problem.

Perhaps it is a related issue, this cpu usage. I use a G4 powerbook a lot for field work. Battery life for most applications is over 4 hours. With VW it drops to about 2 1/2 hours. So if VW could manage it's computer resources more efficiently, I would hope that longer battery life when using it could be had. Perhaps there could be a powersaving preference that would eliminate less than essential background checks and processes so that laptop battery life could be longer.

Hi Donald,

We consider this more of a bug than something one would want to control with a preference. As Katie has indicated, we're looking at ways to fix this. We hope to have something before the next major release.
