Prefer non-active background spinner icon not displayed

Hi,

In version 12, we have an grayed out spiky spinner icon on bottom of status bar even if there is no active background tasks. Of course we see it spin when active, but when nothing is running, I prefer it not to show at all. Having the icon (even if it's grayed out) is distracting.

Do other users feel the same? Should Intellij improve this?

Thanks,
