Didn't help very much. The usage is around 60 - 90 %.
The CPU itself is running on fullspeed(1,73 Ghz). It doesn't cycle down(798 Mhz), if the applet is running. The usage is to high.

I tried your latets package and can confirm that the load is reasonable if not very low in my case.

I published new release of the gnome applet.
It include a call to yield into the main loop.
Please notify me if the processos consumption is still too high. It should consume processor has much as possible but leave enough resources to the other processes.

If not, I will put a sleep() call in place of yield().

Something like:

Code: Select all

while(!terminate) {

If so, you need to add a little Sleep in the beginning of the loop, about 250ms for example.
This would reduce the cpu-usage!
