I have a Surface Pro 4 with Windows 10 that has Prey installed, for some reason, the Cron service that Prey uses is using up to 20% of my processor according to task manager. It's barely ever under 10%.
My other computer also has Prey installed and it doesn't seem anywhere near as demanding there.
It's getting to the point that my Surface is constantly overheating and I'd like to fix it.
There have been no new entries in the logfile since November last year, so it's not doing anything special.
