Hello Dean

Thanks for the fast reply. After having checked, I found that the system had
been hijacked by some sort of "adware" which I removed, the slim server
service now seems to use almost no processor time on idle - I cannot think
what it was doing before. I check that it was not scanning the library etc.
All is ok now but I will keep my eye on it!

That's very strange, it shouldn't use more than 1% of CPU time when
idling. Is it possible it's still scanning your music library or
importing the iTunes Music Library or MoodLogic information?
