I literally turned the computer off all night.  Booted it this morning...no choke hold on the CPU.  That's as it should be, so hopefully that was a fluke what was occurring the day before.

 

I don't use Chrome so can't speak to what michman sees.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I experienced this today - 4.2.0 32 bit; htop showed multiple instances of menu-cached, each using about 6% CPU - total 100% CPU. I had used ePad in the session.

Hmm, for what I know this is not ePad specific.

Seems to be related to the way an application is opened. When using the option "Open with" to open a file in the filemanager the menu-cached gets triggered and never returns to a normal level.

Maybe users can confirm this.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

In terminal use the command top 

This shows cpu and memory usage of running processes. Usually menu-cached does not even show up, but when triggered it will soon be the top process. On a double threaded dual core machine it will reach the 25 % because it will use only 1 out of 4 "cpu's".
