I'm just curious what CPU usage others are getting with the sidebar. The only gadget I have running is the clock and it's sitting at a solid 25% usage...

Hmm. That's the usage it should be....

The strange thing is that it starts out with little to no usage and then at some point it stays a solid 25%....

I wonder if something else is interfering with it?

I haven't actually altered much in the way the clock works,it used mostly the code from the standard clock, only I've added another two functions for showing the date and the digital clock.

Try using the standard clock instead, and see what usage it takes.

Nice modding, Mr.Grim

Okay, it appears to something with my machine (surprise). The standard clock does the same thing.
