I noticed that when using Maple my %CPU seems to be much higher than other apps. This is not just during computation. I may just be entering text, but once I have executed any commands in the worksheet or document the percent seems to stay between 50 and 70. I can stop entering anything for several minutes and it just stays at this level. As soon as I click outside the worksheet on the desktop or on another app it immediately drops down to practically nothing. If I then click back on the worksheet it stays down until I start to enter something and then it jumps back up.
Is this typical? It gets things heated up pretty quickly and as far as I can tell it is my only app that does this.
