synergyd system process using more than 50% of the CPU

12 posts in this topic

As I mentioned in the topic subject, today I was working when the PC started "freezing". Looking for a problem, I found that a process called "synergyd" was overrunning my CPU. I'm using the latest version running in Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview. The other computer is a Mac with the latest version as well running with OSx 10.10.3. Just informing! If you need more information about the applications used during the "indicent", I'll be glad to help Thanks! Keep the excellent work!

I have a similar problem, but running 32-bit Windows 7 SP1 Problem occurs after the machine has been running for a few minutes. Running the newly downloaded v.1.7.3 stable (efd0108) version. (...Windows-x86.msi)

Another "me too" reply ... Windows 7 64 bit, synergyd is eating a full CPU thread even though the pc is running as client only. I have to kill the task right after boot completes. hope this gets fixed soon. bye Enrico

Since installation of the latest version 1.7.3 I have the same problems on two pc's. One ist Windows Server 2008 R2 and the other one Windows 7. The problem exists when the service is running. After starting the GUI when the service takes one CPU the CPU usage is getting to normal. After closing the gui the CPU is used again after a few seconds fully.

I have downgraded to version 1.7.2 and everything is working fine again. Hope the bug is found fast.

Looks like killing the process doesn't affect mouse/keyboard functionality. Didn't test anything else. "synergyd.exe" will also run on its own without Synergy even being open until you either kill it or uninstall 1.7.3.

Another "me too". WIndows 7 64bit. Seems to crash when trying to cut portion of an image on server and paste on client. Also notice issues when a program on the server grabs focus (like notepad++ when it determines new updates are available)

Same issue here, using 12.5% of CPU, or one full core on Windows 8.1 64bit. Uninstall/Reinstall did not fix the issue. Not experiencing the issue on MacOS 10.10
