    At random intervals when I'm idling, I'll notice my fans seem to be running high for just browsing the web or simply browsing my desktop. So I check task manager, and Cortex is at the top of the list using about 10-20 percent of my CPU. I end up killing it and restarting Cortex; however, it can happen again during the same instance of me using my PC.

    Yes, I am having the same exact issue. I have a beefy Windows 10 PC, 11th generation Intel i9 with 64GB of RAM, and Cortex always runs 10% usage on my CPU at IDLE
