I just bought a new Macbook Pro 14". Yea!
After installing Creative Cloud and Lightroom/Photoshop 2 days ago, I've continued to see "Core Sync" listed under "Using Significant Energy" when I click on the battery icon in the menu bar.
I do sync my photos with Lightroom in the cloud, but they are all synced and backed up. What is this "Core Sync" process and why is it continually using "significant energy"?
adobe addresses the issue for windows computers here: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/coresync-is-using-high-cpu-on-my-windows-machine-.html
and for mac os 10.11 here, High CPU or power use when Adobe Creative Cloud is idle on Mac OS 10.11
for other updated mac os'es, there's a work-around - How to Fix Core Sync High CPU Usage on Mac - Disable Core Sync (technclub.com)
Thanks for this. But if I disable Core Sync entirely, won't that stop images from syncing to/from the cloud from Lightroom?
