Whenever I make something simple as even a large blank Makie window my system becomes unusable. For example, if I switch back to vs code it takes a good 3-4 seconds for the text to show up in the editor window, and the instant the Makie window is closed usability is back. I have looked in the activity monitor to see if there is anything that would jump out, but the CPU doesn’t seem to be under that much load. The fan does kick on pretty quickly, so I am wondering if the Activity monitor is missing something.
I am new to using Makie but would assume that this shouldn’t be the normal behavior.
As it is a Laptop I have checked and the behavior is more or less consistent plugged in or not, so that makes me wonder whether the integrated graphics chip is always getting used. Is there a way I can check which GPU is being used?
Is it expected for Makie to bog the system down?
Any ideas on what I could be doing wrong?
