Hi all,

Just an FYI on this possible issue:

My CPU: Intel G2020 2.9 GHz dual core:

Running 8.0, CPU would throttle down to 1/2 speed or so (1.57GHz) during low activity periods.
Running 8.1, CPU now only throttles down to the about 2.73GHz or so during low activity periods.

That spike was generated when I took the screenshot.

I also am noticing a slight increase in background activity in 8.1 but not enough to be a real concern.

Anyway, just an FYI.
