Don’t Leave an iTunes Store Page Open in iTunes

Kirk McElhearn:

If you use a laptop, and your battery dies quickly, check and see if you accidentally left iTunes open on an iTunes Store page, even in the background. Look how much CPU it uses to simply display a front page, and rotate graphics in the carrousel at the top of the page[…]

If I have a store page open, I see constant 20-60% CPU use from iTunes, even when it’s hidden and not playing music.

perhaps apple's reasoning is that,
if after buying your mac, you can
still afford to buy stuff in itunes,
perhaps you need to buy a bigger
and better mac, one which can
handle a simple graphic carousel.
