Interesting, Apple invented the concept of "battery shaming" on the Mac as a way of showing us just which apps were consuming a lot of power, and encouraging the makers of those apps to fix them. So I checked this on my Mac - just click on the battery icon on the toolbar....this is a version of the latest release of Verbum, it has been up all day, it's not currently doing anything - no indexing, no downloads all day. It's been sitting on the Home Page for awhile now. This status is real-time, when I close Verbum the warning goes away. When I restart it, for the 5 seconds or so that it says "Preparing Library" it does not show, but right before the Home Page displays it comes back.

I did notice by looking in the Energy tab of Activity Monitor it requires the high performance GPU. But what is it doing? It may not be practical to run Verbum/Logos on a Mac under battery power:
