I am having a problem with IDEA taking 100% of my Windows 2000 CPU. I have my Task Manager running in my system tray. Whenever IDEA is running AND it is in the background, the task manager shows that my CPU is at 100% utilization. This slows down whatever I am doing in the foreground (obviously).
If I bring IDEA to the foreground (by doing nothing more than clicking on an open IDEA window), the CPU utilization drops dramatically and whatever was in the foreground (and is now in the background) gets CPU and runs. I do nothing with IDEA to make this happen. All I do is bring it to the foreground and the CPU drops. As soon as I bring something else to the foreground (thereby sending IDEA to the background) my CPU gets pegged at 100% again.
This also happens with IDEA 3.0.4. Any ideas?
