    After upgrading, my w7 CPU usage is much higher when idle. It used to be very low, but now it chews ~ 25-45%. Very disappointed by this if I can't find the source cause.

    I just tried disabling Retina support for the VM and that did not make any difference on CPU usage. I also tried changing the Adaptive Hypervisor setting on and off, trying both settings under "Performance" in the optimization preferences, and disabled DirectX support entirely. Nothing made any difference.

    VMware Fusion 5 running the exact VM idles at ~ 6%.
