Idle Photoshop GPU usage

For some reason Photoshop uses GPU when not even in use:

It's a 'copy' usage and GPU is not on high frequency, but still I don;t expect to see pretty much any GPU usage on idle app, does anyone know why this happens, and what PS is supposedly doing in free time?

Not seeing that here, with an RTX 3060. Flat zeros all the way:

Is this by any chance a laptop with dual GPUs? That's known to cause a lot of problems.

I've seen WebView2 GPU Process using up to 0.8% of GPU when Photoshop is idle with no open documents. Strangely opening a document immediately return it to 0%. No idea why though, but at 0.8% I'm not going to worry.

RTX3090 here on Windows 11 with no other GPU (and no integrated GPU in the CPU).

Yes I'm on laptop with dual GPU setup, one is built in with the CPU Radeon R9 5900HX.

Strangely enough after opening document usage also in my case goes to 0% and even clock speed goes down as far as I don't do anything.

Guess I just need to refrain from closing files if I go idle then, this is a strange thing xD

I'm having a similar issue. I have Photoshop in the background, no documents open, and I notice the fan on my computer is constantly whirring. Task manager shows the following:

I've lately just been closing out Photoshop (& Bridge) when not in use to avoid this but would love to have a way to resolve the problem!
