High CPU/GPU/Power usage
For some reason the latest update has Teams using between 8% and 25% CPU idling, doing nothing. There is an issue with this update.
I see the same behaviour. In fact, when Teams is running Outlook spikes CPU utilization as well.
We experience this also in the MacOS- environment. Optimalisation is very welcome.
That's really a problem, I double my laptop battery life by closing MS Teams.
We switched back to Skype for Business.
Teams constantly consumes a small amount of cpu time which blocks my laptop from ever sleeping or hibernating because it is never idle. This is not ideal for many reasons. Obviously the software designed around a polling model which is not generally considered to be a great design pattern. To rephrase this as an idea: Change teams so it works on an event based model rather than constantly polling for updates.
The desktop app uses 4% of my battery on my Windows laptop even if I don't use it at all.

I get a couple less hours of battery life with Teams running in the background on my Surface Laptop.
I've noticed that there is a battery drain on the Mac client as well... and it appears in the list of apps using a lot of power.
I'm having a similar issue on a mid 2016 MacBook Pro, Teams has been regularly clocked at 4% drain over 10 minutes of being idle despite it being a fairly new machine and not having these issues when Teams is not open.
From the logs, it also seems to be checking for updates every 3 hours.
Teams desktop client background running is draining laptop battery every couple of hours. See attached image. Additionally, since installing the client, whenever I have put the machine into sleep mode, it reboots itself within a matter of seconds of shutting the lid.
