    Hi, so I've attached a screenshot below showing what I'm seeing in Intel Power Gadget. I have used the tool before and have never experienced what I've been seeing with my rMB m7. Wondering if this is normal behavior or not.

    You can clearly see there's like quick gaps where it doesn't appear the processor is doing anything. Anyone else see these strange gaps similar to the ones in the screenshot?

    I realized them today, too, while observating my damaged MBA. My first theory was: that gaps are the moments when the system was in standby. The value of the timestamp after the standby ist far ahead and because of this the tool has no if normations about what happend before, it just leaves a blank.

    But if your system wasn't in standby, I have to thing for an other theory again.

    It's because you have PowerGadget in the background and AppNap has activated which is "pausing" the application. Either keep PowerGadget in the foreground or disable AppNap :)
