I noticed after the most recent Windows10 update that my system was running continuously at 15% cpu usage even when idle. Causing the fan to start and stop at random intervals.

After some digging it turned out to be caused by a screensaver slideshow running on the login screen. Or at least, turning that off cured the problem.

Which adds two more items to the long list of Windows mysteries. Why leave a login slideshow running in the background after a user has logged in? And why change it in the latest update? :?

To turn it off, go to Start > Settings > Personalisation > Lock screen. In the drop-down list change Slideshow to Picture. Or alternatively scroll down and switch off "Show lock screen background picture".

Your mileage may vary. May contain nuts.

cheers,

Martin.

The screen saver is one of my own pics. Perhaps because of that, haven't had the problem.

The problem was the slideshow (frequently changing pictures) rather than showing a single picture.

Also, this refers to the login screen which appears immediately after switching on, not the desktop "wallpaper", if that's confusing anyone.

cheers,

Martin.

My problems with my two of my PCs which run Win 10 is getting Onedrive to work properly. It did work properly for some time then started to go dodgy about a year ago and now needs poking in one way or another to update and upload to the cloud. I've jumped through all the hoops on the "How to sort Onedrive" web pages with no luck. The installation on my older Win7 PC works faultlessly. :)

Jim.
