CPU usage increases with duration Rstudio is open. (R v4.0/Win 10.018363)

A few days ago I noticed R was using 34% of the CPU when I had no code running. I noticed it again today and I can't figure out why. If I restart R, CPU usage returns to normal, then after 20 minutes or so it starts using CPU cycles again. The amount of CPU cycles increases slowly over time.

I don't think it's a windows task reporting error since my cpu temps are what I would expect for a constant 34% cpu usage (~56C). I initially thought it was package related (flexdashboard), but the issue occured without using the package.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to troubleshoot this type of issue.

It's getting quite high! 65% CPU usage from Rstudio R Session alone.

What RStudio version are you using? Do you have the same problem with the preview version?

If so, then I think you should file an issue on the github repo

Great question! I'm embarrassed I omitted the info: R Studio Version 1.2.5042

I will try the preview version now.

No CPU issues with R Studio Version 1.3.958.

I'll update if anything changes later in the day, but the problem seems to be related to R Studio Version 1.2.5042.
