Yup, there were a couple of optimizations in this build (and a couple more planned before MM 2024 is released) and CPU utilization is generally a bit lower.

Mine is a newer system HP Laptop about 1 yr old.

As you mention, I had not noticed any change in the windowed (not full screen) state, but most likely the overall effort here would have helped with that as well.

My MediaMonkey is also using less CPU power now.
Normally when MM was in view and was idle, it was still using 1or 2% cpu, now it drops to sometimes to 0, but mostly 0,2 to 0,4 %cpu
When playing a song, between 3, and 5% cpu usage, now around 0,8 to 2%.

Note i am using a older system, so on a newer system those values will be lower then mine, and so not even noticable.

Rob_S are you using a some what older system?
Do you also notice these drops in CPU usage besides the full view issue?

Confirmed fixed for me after installing 3029 build.

Thanks for persisting!! :)

FYI: We have found the culprit and the issue will be fixed as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=20983 in the upcoming build 3029.

ok, thanks, let's continue via "[Ticket #7120] High CPU useage on full screen"

OK, portable install, loaded database from exising 2024.

Similar results 2% windowed, 18-22% maximised.

Tried database maintenance, that made no difference, it contains only 13.8 k tracks.

You can do a Portable Install in a separate location. This will be the clean install, leaving your current install untouched. This allows you to test this problem on a clean install, without messing with your current installation of MediaMonkey.

Just tried with Hardware accelleration turned off, no difference

For "Clean install" you mean just uninstall and then re-install as opposed to install over, or what else do I have to do to make it "Clean"

I will attach the screenshots to the ticket.

In addition, can you share a screen capture that shows what your full screen layout looks like? Maybe there's something about the skin/layout/setup that's triggering this.



p.s. we've tested on Ryzen 5/7 machines and can't replicate.

That sounds like Maximize, not full screen.

What is being displayed in MediaMonkey at this time, or does this not matter? Is hardware acceleration enabled/disabled under Tools > Options > Performance? Does a clean install suffer the same issue on your setup?

Yes, full screen, ie what happens when you click on the single small square top right corner of title bar, just beside the X. This button has a tool-tip labelled "Maximise window" :)

In all cases MM is idle, as mentioned above. Not playing anything, all known background processes completed.

However, it appears the CPU numbers in each state are not much different when it IS playing, ie 4-6% when windowed, and 30-40% when full screen

To be clear, you don't mean maximized, but instead mean full screen? What is showing when in full screen? If Playing with Artwork is it set to Animate background on playback?

Yes, for me it is, see updated ticket. Is there anyone else on here with a Ryzen 5 CPU which appears to be a prerequisite for this to occur??

To reproduce, simply start media monkey and wait for it to stabilize, ie finish checking for updates and finish any startup scans. Leave it doing nothing. Reduce MM to "Windowed" size.

Then start task manager and observe CPU percent used - for me it stabilizes around 2-4%

Switch MM to full screen, and tab to the task manager. I usually see CPU stabilize around 25-35%.

From full screen, reducing back to windowed state almost immediately reduces back to 2-4%

Also, from full screen, reducing to Miniplayer leaves high CPU at around 25-35%.

Is full-screen high CPU usage still occurring with build 3027 (we haven't been able to replicate)?
