I would like to bring to attention if this was not already brought to your attention recently, I found this problem from 2012 and 2013.
When my laptop is put to sleep, next time I wake up the laptop, Whatpulse will start using 20-50% CPU. I tried leaving this to settle down, but after 3-4hrs it was still the same. A simple, open task manager and kill process will fix the issue as the watchdog will reopen whatpulse.
But this is annoying to say the least.
From performed tests, it does not matter if it’s on battery power or not, it will do this 99% of the times I put my laptop to sleep and wake it back up.
To minimize posts such as “I get this too”, please vote on the poll I have created so the devs will see that this is a problem for most users ( I assume it is, cause this happens on 3 machines)
yeah while the issue is still present, every time I open my laptop and the OS wakes up I have to kill whatpulse, it will auto restart, but it’s annoying. seriously considering fo uninstalling the app, even though I have years of data on it
I have a similar issue. I think it is related with (virtual) network cards appearing/disappearing as I can reproduce it under linux by building docker containers. That usually makes whatpulse hang, start using a lot of CPU and tons of RAM until I kill it and then the system takes up to an hour to slowly get the RAM back and run normal. Seen it with resuming from standby too but pretty seldom - and I’m not doing that too often though, I usually switch them off, NVMe-SSD boots up fast enough and I had it a few times that the notebook switched itself on inside the bag and almost died from the heat…
