Low GPU Usage after tabbing back into P3Dv4.5

Postby eljuanitor » Sun Nov 10, 2019 12:28 pm

Hey everyone!

So this has been bugging me lately. On my previous PC build, I did long haul flights by getting to cruise alt and then minimizing p3d in order to save a bunch of resources. I would then tab back in right before descent, which worked flawlessly and helped prevent continuous load on my hardware. On my new pc however, I am not able to do this AT ALL. As soon as I tab back in before descent, my fps is at Five frames per second. I noticed that my GPU at that point is using about half of its power compared to before I minimized the sim. Any ideas why this could be the case and how that's the way it is now I have a new pc.

Thanks in advance!

Using P3D in Window or Full Screen mode? Try switching modes before minimizing.
