I’ve been having some issues with battery life related to Atom for a while, it consistently has a fairly high energy impact as measured by Mavericks’ Activity Monitor. Even when I have no files or folders open and I’ve minimized the window, it consistently uses more energy than Firefox with >20 tabs open and any other application I have open for development purposes.
As it doesn’t hog any specific resource in particular (I checked network traffic, CPU, memory, and disk writes, all of them seemed on the lower side of average) I’m wondering if there’s anything in particular I can do to troubleshoot this. The only metric I can see is how much time a plugin adds to Atom’s startup time, but this doesn’t necessarily correlate to the amount of resources it’ll use when open.
Any ideas appreciated!
