CPU usage

Just noticed that although there are no monitors currently being processed, Simon is using ~15% of the CPU, and has been doing it for at least the last hour that I have been monitoring. I have Simon installed on a headless mac mini and I only noticed it as I was browsing the Activity Monitor in Mountain Lion.

Runaway process perhaps?
Thanks

Re: CPU usage

If the Simon Monitor window is frontmost, it will use a bit of CPU to keep the display refreshed, but shouldn't be as high as 15%. You can avoid even that by turning on the preference to hide the window when the app is in the background.

You could help determine the cause by doing a Sample on Simon via Activity Monitor.
