Battery usage

Post by morphe » Wed Jun 25, 2014 7:12 pm

Hello,

Since I made update on LaunchBar6, I see that my MBA need to be powered more often.
I check the energy comsuption, and I saw that LaunchBar consume way much more energy than my Firefox or my Chrome that have 20+ tabs open ....

Thank you for your help.

I have also recently noticed this problem. The pkd (pluginkit daemon) also goes nuts when Launchbar runs. I'm running Launchbar 6.5 on a retina MBP running Yosemite.

I remember a similar case where both the 'LaunchBar' and the 'pkd' processes were running on high CPU usage, and this latter 'PluginKit Daemon' process possibly gets active because OS X Sharing Services get indexed by LaunchBar during some constant re-indexing of one of your active index rules.

An indexed rule can be triggered for re-indexing by several reasons, mainly because some modification on the indexed items has been recognized, but this constant re-indexing could be related to some bug in an OS X update, you can read about this issue here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203129

My battery usage on my MBA similarly was through the roof. I only have Launchbar installed. Any ideas yet on why this is happening? It uses 5x more energy than my PDF reader, Word, and Safari combined...
