        Fan been running all morning. This has happened before.
        No files have been changed, so OneDrive should be idle.

        Stats:
        Onedrive energy impact 99.1% (53.31 over the past 8 hours) even when unplugged from power.
        MacOS Siera 10.12.6 MacBook Air 11-inch mid 2011
        "OneDrive is up to date"

        Same issue here, killing my battery life and seriously heating up MacBook. Having to kill Onedrive and only open when needed then kill it again.

        I am speaking of my «el capitan» installation: While OneDrive uses the CPU fairly in idle - it «adsorbs» the full power of my CPU, if i am restarting it. And as we have tons of folders on it, this takes about 5-10 minutes.

        My CPU usage hits the roof and caused every fan on my system to turn on for syncing one file.... This needs to be fixed....

        I'm killing the service and no longer letting it launch at login due to the issue. will keep an eye out for a app update with mention of a fix for this issue in the update notes before I go back.

        Same here and this issue is really a joke, because before my Mac (Nov. 2017) I used the Surface Pro 3 with OneDrive and it made the Surface literally burning hot! Almost every second day I had to force kill OneDrive from the task manager to stop my system from overheating. Obviously Microsoft is not able to build a working cloud storage sync regardless of the platform. I will quit my membership and switch to a competitor product, because this issue followed me way to long (3 years)!!! I mean at some point you should be able to fix this issue with an update or rewrite the whole **** thing. I must say, that the only reasons I kept OneDrive for so long is, because of the bundled offer with Office and because of the effort to migrate everything. But at some point thanks to alternative free products and my anger overcoming my convenience, these reasons faded away.

        Same Problem is being faced by me in my organization for 3 Mac Systems.
        MacOS 10.13.2
        OneDrive Sync client 17.3.7131.1115

        This kills battery and high CPU usage as much as 95%

      • Amol Pol commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Even I have 3 Mac's with such issue
        MacOS: 10.13.2
        OneDrvie Sync Client Version: 17.3.7131.1115

        This kills battery very much and consumes heavy RAM.

        Please address this. Our company is on Office 365 and we are crippled now.

        I have the same problem on both my iMac and MacBook Pro running Ver 10.13.2 95% plus CPU usage. Kill OneDrive drops down to 20%

        Same here. It is more than 100% and my mac is getting heated up with quick battery drain. Please solve this issue immediately.
