Very High Energy Impact on Mac

Using Sourcetree v4 on a 2019 MacBook Pro 15in. If left open in the background, SourceTree is almost always at the top of the MacOS Activity Monitor for Energy usage. Average Energy Impact is listed at 109.  Compared to the next highest being Firefox at 25.6. It's also at the top of CPU, and Disk usage, even when in the background and not in active use.

If I don't remember to completely quit SourceTree when I disconnect from power, it will most assuredly drain my battery.

Joel, did you find any solution? 

+1 This is pretty ridiculous. Please fix it. I don't want to have to switch to the github client

+1 i basically can't keep it open if i'm not plugged into power.

I've found that disabling the "Check default remotes for updates..." seems to help with this.


Unfortunately not working for me.
