justingrant Posted January 14, 2007 Share Posted January 14, 2007 The animated moving box around a selection is cool, but it eats up CPU on my Vista laptop-- as much as 20% utilization on my 2GHz, dual-core Toshiba M5. On a laptop that kind of continuous CPU utilization will drain the battery very fast. Plus the continuous fan noise and fry-an-egg-on-it heat aren't fun eiither. I realize I could simply remember to always turn off the selection in Paint.NET to avoid draining the battery, but that seems like a big hassle. Anyway, I like my battery life and quiet fan-- possible to turn off the animation or at least make it optional? Not sure if the same problem occurs on non-Vista PCs.
