Agreed, but not for every second of runtime. Typically I see %100 CPU usage when an application has a tight "event" loop that doesn't allow the "scheduler" (depending on platform) a sufficient slice of inactivity. I've seen the addition of a simple sleep call (for as little as a tenth of a second) dramatically reduce the amount of reported CPU utilization, without negatively impacting game play.

I would be happy to test out a "MaxFrameRate" setting if you do end up throwing together a beta"!
