    Hi,

    I got a new MBA last weekend and transferred the library from my old MBP to it, by copying the Music/iTunes folder.

    The library contains only apps for my iPhone and iPad, no music. After transferring and starting iTunes the MBA felt sluggish. A look in Activity Monitor shows CPU usage is > 100%. Even after a couple of hours, CPU activity doesn't go down.

    Is there anyway I can hunt down this issue ? Is it looking for something ? I'm not using any plugins, just the basic iTunes setup with a copied library.

    Thanks !

    It is possible that iTunes is processing song info and artwork. Depending on your library's size, it may take some time. I would wait and see if the problem persists.

    Also, try restarting the computer (if you haven't tried already.)

    Well that's the point: there are no songs in the library, only apps.

    I cleaned out as much as possible, deleted plist files, but still it's eating cpu like crazy.
