Improve energy efficiency
The energy efficiency of the OneDrive app on the Mac appears to be quite poor. It eats the battery pretty quickly.
OneDrive frequently shows up as "Using Significant Energy" even when laptop is almost idle, yes, I have tried reset and remove cache.
Even when paused (manually from the menu) the app keeps consuming more energy than most other open applications that are actually in use.
I quite OneDrive for that reason as battery is draining for no purpose.

Whenever I check my list of battery consuming applications, OneDrive is first on the average power consumption. On a regular basis it goes on 1st rank of the actual consumption. I think, MacOS is offering some power saving technologies that could be of help here. How about "App Nap" for example?
