Somebody please please please tell me someone has figured out a way to fix the kernel_task running rampant and eating up all the CPU. When the problem happens the laptop becomes completely unusable. The other day while working in Pro Tools (pro audio software) it happened again and totally destroyed a session. I had to stop for hours until it resolved itself and went back to normal because the only solution was unplugging the charger. That wasn't a viable solution because even though kernel_task would go back to normal after a few minutes, the regular CPU load means the battery dies quickly. So plugged up the laptop is useless because of kernel_task. Unplugged it's useful only for a brief amount of time. Has anyone figured out how to correct this problem yet?
