CPU 100% while displayed

    I tested out coverJuke yesterday and it is a great piece of software.

    It works absolutely flawless on my Desktop, but I found some strange
    behavier on my notebook conncted to the stereo that I use as my music pc.

    Whenever I play music from coverjuke (internal as well as from WinAmp) I
    see the system cpu jump to 100% which then turns on the fan ( what I
    normally try to avoid). Whenever I now minimize coverJuke to the system
    tray the cpu goes back to normal (even when continueing to play music).
    As soon as I maximize it again the notebook's cpu jumps back to 100%.

    I could not reproduce this behavier with my desktop and also not with
    another notebook which leads me to think this might be somewhat hw specific.

    My notebook is a Amilo Pro 2020 with a Intel pentium 725 Processor and
    1.6 GHz (2MB second cache). it has 512 MB ram and a 15'' TFT XGA (1024x768)
    display driven by a Intel 855GM chipset.

    Any chance for some help on this ?

    Thanks in advance,

      Hey mst46,

      When you minimize coverJuke, the program stop OPENGL, but when you see the window the program refresh screen.
      You can see de refresh rate by use the key "²" on your keyboard.
      Sorry, but I think I can't debug your problem... but I will try!

      Well thanks a lot Mikael, since 1.30 the mentioned behavier did
      vanish. I already realised at the time when 1.30 came out but couldn't
      find my passwd for sourceforge - sorry for being sooo late ;-).
