    SQL Developer takes up CPU resources when it is idle

    Brian Biggs

      I am running SQL Developer on Windows 7. I notice that even when I am not directly using SQL Developer, it tends to always take up about 25% of my CPU. I use Process Explorer to monitor my machine resources, and it always shows SQL Developer using up CPU resources, even when it's not connected to any databases or running any queries. I do have 30-40 SQL scripts open, but I wouldn't think that would make CPU usage so high.


      This is a problem when using the laptop on battery, since the higher CPU usage tends to cause the battery to drain much more quickly.


      Anyone else have this problem? And better yet, any solutions?


      BTW, this is not unique to 18.2. I have had this problem with most of the previous versions, at least since 17.something.
