Hello,

I am aware of multiple topics on CPU usage but here is mine. Just starting (again) with TheBrain (Free edition). But the CPU usage is enormous and I also see an very large number of 'idle wake ups' in Mac's Activity Monitor.

I have maximized TheBrain so I can always Triple-finder wipe to TheBrain from mij other desktop. This is working nicely. TheBrain is idle at 0,7 % CPU and only going to TheBrain (doing nothing) and immediatly go back to Activity Monitor makes the brain use 100+% CPU and generate 1000-s of 'idle wake ups'. When the 'idle wake ups' go down (after about 30 seconds) the CPU also goed down (or vice-versa). 

I made a not so short video  of it to show you (I think to big to add here so the link is here (big file 135Mb download).  

Where can I find the output.log on MacOS?

Currently I have only 54 thoughts in my brain (like I said just starting all over) but I am afraid to add more if it is already an issue with CPU usage. 

Regards,
Jeroen

Jeroen,

Thank you for posting. Logs can be found by clicking on Help > Open Log Directory in TheBrain. We'd like to see the Output.log file and you can send it into support@thebrain.com with a brief description or link to this forum thread.

Can you confirm that you are running TheBrain 10.0.5+? Do you see less CPU consumption from TheBrain if it is not fully maximized?

Thank you,
Matt

Thanks Matt,

Indeed using the latest 10.0.5.0 version. I send the output.log referring to this topic. 
I tried the same without maximizing and I see the CPU is getting very low (<1%) when not used but only opening thebrain like in the video make it spike to 100%). 

Regards,
Jeroen

To follow up ... TheBrain fixed some of the high CPU problem in the latest 51 release. Still high CPU butt less than before. I understood they are actively working on it.
