    Is 0% CPU usage a problem? I don't understand. Why is it?

    I had hoped that in the update, metro apps would work with uac turned off, so I could at least try some... if only to say that I did. Alas, that is not the case.

    But I did try.

    It's not a problem for me on my PC's. I'd have to have a pretty underpowered PC before I worried about stuff like that.

    What before zero was a problem?

    No the staying resident in memory/visible in task manager part. It appears to me that that's what people are keying in on. If your OCD about stuff like that I guess it would bother you. The rest of us will just ignore it and move on. It's not an issue for me.

    Yeah I guess that is the only reason it bothers me, just the fact it is still residing there. I guess I could just stop looking and all would be well lol.

    (Chuckle at myself) The cure is Alt/F4 for me.

    The new slide down app bar bothers me that it's there with no option to turn off. Probably never see it for I'm not a mouser, but it bothers me all the same.

    BTW. Tried the grabbing the bar to slide down to close the apps option that I posted somewhere didn't work for me, but does. Didn't know they eliminated the grab hand and wasn't waiting long enough for the pointer to grab. Does that mean on a touch screen one has to slide it down with gesture then wait for grab? Probably just hitting the X would be quicker.

    Another thing I noticed is when using the "Search everywhere" option in Charms search it opens IE desktop instead of the Modern/Metro IE as in the past. Probably to satisfy the"Desktoppers"? Does anyone know if that has changed on touch devices?

    Once I've used the X to "close" the app, check in Task Manager and see it's still there, then go back and try to close it from the left upper corner, it's not there to close.

    So, once I close with the X, I guess I'd have to go to Task Manager to completely close it? Or just run up to the top left, right click on the app and click close.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm. . .

    I am pretty OCD about these things personally but try to confine it to Event Viewer. If I get OCD about task manager as well then I'll be going too far.

    "X" closed Live tiles leave more than zero CPU and memory. Weather leaves about 1 - 2 % CPU and 85 MB memory.
