    Hi All
    Stellaruim runs my CPU at between 88 - 98 present all the time and this halts my whole system , I installed ver 13.0 and then reinstalled ver 12.4 , but the problem still persists , it ran fine before and lived happily with AP tools.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks
    Andre

    find this section in your config.ini file

    [video]
    fullscreen = false
    horizontal_offset = 0
    maximum_fps = 10000
    minimum_fps = 18
    screen_h = 768
    screen_w = 1024
    screen_x = 419
    screen_y = 87
    vertical_offset = 0
    viewport_effect = none

    change the values
    maximum_fps = 50
    minimum_fps = 4

    this will slow the program down when it is idling and leave some processing power for other programs.

    On my XP system the config.ini file is in folder %APPDATA%\Stellarium

    Also, look for a shortcut to config.ini in your Start Menu, Stellarium folder.
