by Morganiser » Thu Apr 10, 2008 10:14 pm

I have a similiar problem with high cpu usage. For me it accours when ripping to flac - started occurring not long after upgrading from 2.xx to 3.02.

I Have a centrino duo, xp sp2 (toshiba p100) a gig of ram and it maxes out one cpu and the other stays down about 40%.

I dont have it set to 'album view', not monitoring files and dont have 'level volume' checked... (apparently that can cause a problem.)

Makes me consider downgrading to 2.x but it would be alot nicer ti fix it!

any ideas?

Sorry , what I meant to say was if you have MM in the album art view and have file monitor on it will cause high memory and cpu use. I notice this after leaving MM in album art view and setting file monitor option on.

If you have MM in album view and have file monitor turned on it will chew up all your cpu?? This was noted somewhere but I can't find the original post. I guess it is a know problem with 3.0?? Does anyone know where the original post about this bug is located?? It kills my core duo with 4 gig ram if I forget and leave MM in album view and reboot with file monitor on.

Hi Folks,

I have installed. I'm not sure when the problems starts, but I often find that MM is chewing up 99% or so of my CPU (causing my laptop to heat up like crazy, etc). I think it might happen after resuming from sleep, but not always. Does anyone else have this issue? How should I go about debugging it?
