Console GPU Usage
I have noticed through task manager that the Configuration Manager Console uses a fair amount of GPU. For my particular laptop, it is about 20% of the 3D engine on my GPU.
If I could toggle a power saving feature for the console, which would reduce the GPU usage in some way, it would help increase the length of battery power on my laptop.
Thank you for your consideration.
The console is built upon the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) framework. By default, this framework will use GPU hardware acceleration and rendering when it can.

We shouldn’t be doing a lot in the way of computationally heavy graphical operations in the console, but there may be room for optimizations in some UI areas.
If you see any specific areas that seem to be harder on the GPU please send us a frown from that specific UI area so we can look into it.
