Are you sure you are waiting long enough after restarting the frontend
to see the steady state CPU usage. I get the same thing regardless of
what I have the GUI resolution set to. I am on SD CRT and I tried
640x480 and the theme base resolution of 1280x720. I also have almost
all of those plugins installed. If I restart the frontend the CPU
usage goes down and then after a minute or two it will come back up to
15% and sit there like that. So if I don't wait long enough then it
appears that the CPU usage is down around 0% to 1%, but if I wait I
see the steady state of 15%.
