Yep I guess it's caching thumbs...
Authored by: yorran on Mar 11, '03 01:53:08PM

You must all be right about thumbs caching & CPU usage : my iPhoto app is set to start by showing film rolls and my rolls are always closed at startup.
For a test I opened iPhoto and watched CPU usage by the "top" command : it climbed to 60% for a second or two, and then went back to 0% and stayed there... so far with a Tibook 400 ! :-)
My guess is, iPhoto didn't need to cache anything at startup, therefore it had nothing to do.
I waited some time, then played with the views and options, and then got back to closed roll : the usage returned to 0% when in background.
