SOLVED Huge uplift in CPU usage when switching sessions

Postby LoopBack » 2019-12-03 20:56

Hello.

I'm running Debian 10.1 on an Intel Core 2 Duo HP laptop.
When I start a new session from an existing one using:-
Menu > Power/Session > Switch User
and then go to log back into the first one [because see this earlier post of mine]
the cpu usage shown by TOP becomes a persistant 100%.
Up until the point that I log back into the first session, there is no uplift in the cpu usage.
The high cpu usage is by:- kwin_x11 for the first session.
Has anyone else had this trouble (& perhaps even fixed it)?

I usually put my laptop into standby rather than shutdown;
however, having just brought it up from power-off: the problem has cleared !

More troubleshooting for your KDE issue: If you log out and back into KDE when it's at 100%, does that make any difference?
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Clipgrab 3.8.6, Hedgewars 1.0.0, PulseEffects 4.6.9, Telegram-desktop 1.8.15, Pale Moon 28.8.0, KeepassXC 2.5.1
