2022.1.x consuming memory and CPU while idle

I'm rolling back to 2021.3.3 where I never had this problem, but FYI since upgrading eventually at some point pycharm rises to the top of my Task Manager taking 75-85% CPU even though I'm not running or debugging anything.  I'm also getting the "not enough memory" panels pretty frequently now.

Hi 8forty,

Can you provide a screenshot of the lower righthand corner of your screen that shows how much memory you are using?

While its installing or running something, there should me a progress bar of sorts at the bottom of the screen saying that xyzzy or whatever process is running. Can you provide a copy of the .py file that generated this? I had a similar problem and it turned out I had created a loop in my code that created cron jobs for python and I forgot to tell them to turn off.

Hey Andrew, I'll try to get a screenshot next time it happens, but note that this is happening when I'm not running any python, just having the editor open

Since the last update, I'm seeing excessive CPU and memory use at startup. It's become almost unusable. I'm running an i5 with 8g RAM. I started this run 15 minutes ago (first image below)... and it's still "reloading generated skeletons". After 15 minutes, it settles down to 806.5MB with no plugins and no files loaded. So I load up a batch file that'm gonna use to launch pytest. The file is 3,857 bytes. But as you can see from the second image, we're now above 1.367GB. I'm agast.
