I have a pretty high-end MacBook Pro (mid-2018, 2.7GHz quad-cord i7, 16GB RAM, over 100GB free on my SSD) and Mylio is only app that has ever choked it. It insists on using 100-150% of my CPU even when idle. This ramps up the fans full blast and starts draining my fully charged battery despite having a 90W charger attached to a system which only requires 61W. It boggles my mind how Mylio is using up so much energy, especially when it’s activity section is empty which would make one think that its doing nothing. It’s obviously doing something, and I’d like to know what that is. My system is pretty much unusable for anything else when Mylio is open as the system starts throttling the CPU due to so much heat. Again I want to reiterate that no other apps on my system do this.
This out of control resource usage does not reduce or stop when the app is minimized or closed…only when fully quit and then after a few mins of cooling off, performance goes back to normal again.
Is this a known issue? If so, when will it be fixed? If not, what can I do to help you find a fix?
The only workaround I’ve found thus far is a 3rd party program called App Tamer. I started their 15 day free trail and set Mylio to never use more then 50% CPU and so far it is doing it’s job and keeping Mylio throttled so the rest of my system is usable. However this is a dirty solution that I would like to avoid.
