I was using Logos last night and then closed the lid of my laptop so it would go into sleep mode.  This morning I opened the laptop and it woke from sleep mode.  After a couple minutes (using logos, the only application open) the fan started running faster because the laptop was running hotter.  I checked Task Manager and found that along with Logos.exe there were two instances of LogosCEF.exe running.  The first was using 12 percent of CPU usage and the second about 2 percent of CPU usage.

I exited Logos and all three command lines dropped from the list in Task Manager.  I then saved all the Logos log files with a modified date since I started using Logos last night.  They are in the attached zip file (including a PNG of the Task Manager showing the 3 logos command lines running).  After saving the files, I relaunched Logos.  LogosCEF.exe did not show up in Task Manger and a couple minutes later the laptop fan returned to normal.

This behavior has been happening intermittently for several versions of Logos, but this is the first time I checked it out.

Laptop specs: HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC; Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit) SP1; I7-2670QM; 8GB of memory

Tiim, 12% sounds about normal. What percentage does it normally use?

Tim,

This is not something I can reproduce. Could you submit your logs, and also can you check to make sure your hard drive was set to go to sleep. If it wasn't and Logos started to index overnight that would affect CPU usage.

Logos.exe normally runs 2% or less and LogosCEF.exe (the rare times I see it running) is normally 1% or less.

Logos was not indexing at the time the computer went to sleep nor when it woke up and this problem occurred.  The fan was running normal when the computer went to sleep and was running normal for a few minutes when it woke up, until it started to get warm and stepped up the fan speed.  The sleep mode includings hard drives.

My logs are attached to my original post (file: 3288.cef.zip)

Tim,

If this happens again could you take a screenshot or video so we can see what is going on. This will help us track down what might be causing the problem.

What do you need a screenshot or video of?

Hi Tim,

We need to see what's open in Logos. The LogosCEF.exe runs things on the Home Page and Interactives. In the case of the Home Page if you have something animated running from a blog on the Home Page or if there is an Interactive running this might be what is causing the jump in CPU. Having this info will help us see what is going on when you are opening Logos from sleep mode and track down what is happening. We can't determine this info from the logs.

Blessings,

Philana

Thank you for referencing the Home Page.  I don't use that much, but did recently, which may be why I have this problem intermittently.  I'll try to trigger the problem over the next few days and get you a picture/video/description of what I had open/done before the problem manifests itself (along with log files of that session).
