Description Diego Alcántara 2014-04-07 01:01:17 UTC
Hardware context: I have 2 screens (monitor and TV), I've an ATI video card with proprietary drivers.

The screensaver activates (it happens with every screensaver I may choose); I return to the PC and move the mouse to stop the animation, I notice the screensaver process is still running "in background". The processes keep consuming a lot of % CPU

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In a two-screen configuration, let the screensaver (for instance kslideshow.kss) activate
2. Move the mouse to stop animations

Actual Results:  
top or htop shows that the processes are still running.

Expected Results:  
The processes shouldn't be running, or if they do, they should consume much less CPU

Note than there are 10 kslideshow.kss processes, 3 of them consuming a lot of CPU %
