TCC 9.02 timeslices

Hi

Just a curosity question (and for the 4NT and TCC gurus :-) to think about).

I have 2 instances of TCC 9.02.155 running under Windows XP Professional SP3. And I also have SysInternals Process Explorer, v11.13 running as well.

Every other timeslice, TCC is consuming 0% CPU resources
And every other timeslice, TCC is consuming 0.77% CPU resources
Admittedly that is low. But if I look at Windows Explorer or Windows Media Player - they remain at 0% for what seems like forever.

I am wondering what causes the every other 0.77%.
Have I got something switched on that could be switched off if not needed?

Cheers

It isn't anything in TCC, which is just sitting inside a
WaitForSingleObject call waiting for you to hit a key. It's probably an
artifact of the Windows console handler.
