My MacBook Pro experiences high CPU load and correspondingly short battery life when compared to my very cheap (small and awkward to use) Windows 8.1 tablet.

Whilst the tablet allocates about 7.5% of its rather modest Atom CPU towards fldigi, the i5 processor in the MacBook allocates around 25% !

Has anyone discovered a way of mitigating this high load. I've checked the option for slow CPU and adjusted the algorithms for speed to almost no effect. The fldigi forum on Yahoo Groups seems to be more Linux focused so I wasn't able to solve the problem there.
