Microgaming - cpu alarm on idle?

Hi guys

I know Microgaming recently fixed the bugs that were reported at the last games release. But I've noticed that since then, if i'm in any MG casino (Well, i say "any", but the ones i have anyway), after a short period of idleness, for example after autoplay has finished, my CPU alarm sounds and my CPU usage shows the MG casino software at running at 99% usage. It stops after a while if i run another autoplay or close down the casino and re-enter.

Its only recently started but bloody annoying. I havent changed my PC in any way either (that i'm aware of) - its a 1.3gig Athlon.

Anyone else seeing this?

Cheers

Simmo!

I don't have an alarm, don't think I do anyway, lol. I can tell you though that the casinos still don't run the same as they used to before the last set of games. Don't know if it is just more server congestion or what, but it is very frustrating. And there is another set of games coming out this month, gonna have to buy a new puter soon just to play the casinos, lol. :)

Sounds like a leak of some sort - buying a new computer won't help with this problem...it's a software issue. It'll do the same thing on most computers.

Congestion wouldn't have anything to do with your CPU usage..

Hopefully this will be something they address in new updates.

Hey Winbig, I'm no computer genius, actually not very computer literate at all. CPU usage, does this have anything to do with the RAM? Or is it something else? I know it comes up if I hit control, alt and delete at same time to reboot or check running applications, etc. Without making you type too much, can you briefly describe what CPU Usage relates to? Just not sure if it's hard drive memory or RAM or ???? Thanks in advance, it is appreciated.

Actually, I played Cinema Casino last week-end and there were still annoying glitches. But 32Red was fine.

Basicly, unless you're playing/converting video or running graphics/mathmatical intensive programs, the CPU usage should hover well under 10%. If it jumps above this, you can pretty much guarantee somethings not right with the program that's using more of the CPU....and no, this has nothing to do with your RAM (although if these programs are eating up the CPU, they'll usually be using alot of memory too.) or hard drive or internet connection.

To check what your CPU usage is, right click on the taskbar, then choose "task manager" from there, click on the "processes" tab. At the bottom in the middle, it'll show you what your CPU usage is...You will also see to the further right of the process name what the CPU & memory usage is for each program running. ;)

Thanks so much Winbig, think I understand sort of. I just checked mine and it fluctuates between 4-9%, so I'm assuming that is okay from what you said. Thanks again. :)
