Looks like the culpret could be the battery monitor. With that removed
it drops down to around 1%.

The systemperformance monitor was a huge drain on this machine pushing
things up to over 10%.

Is there anyway to set the rate that plugins do updates. This could make
a huge diff in how much cpu they soak up and for things like a battery
monitor you really don't care if they only update one per second or so.
