Photoshop using significant energy while closed (Macbook pro M1)

Hi guys,

 

I've seen a couple similar posts but none that have resolved my issue. My Macbook Pro M1 Pro continues to say that photoshop is using significant energy, even though photoshop is not in use. This continues to be the case all the time unless I uninstall the software from my computer, as soon as it's redownloaded it again starts using significant energy.

 

I've also been noticing the effects - although I've been working a lot on my laptop, the battery has been going very fast, the fans have been coming on often (which is usually never the case).

 

Some help would be greatly appreciated. For specs, I'm using Photohsop 2024 (latest version on date of post), Macbook Pro M1 Pro, 16GB Ram.

 

Thanks!

Uninstall/reinstall is almost always useless on the Mac. Don't waste time doing that as a troubleshooting step ever. I suspect that you are a former Windows user or following Windows-based troubleshooting? Energy use is mostly irrelevant on the Mac. Photoshop doesn't run the battery down so you likely have something else going on.

Secondly, Adobe installs a number of other background services that run whether or not the primary application is in use or not. These should not have any effect on an M1 computer performance but you'll see Adobe-releated items running.

You can see if Photoshop is indeed active by checking Activity Monitor. Make sure it has fully quit and then take a look at CPU and Memory usage.

Finally, how much free space is on your scratch drive? Photoshop reserves significant space and if your internal drive is almost full, this WILL cause problems.
