    Hey protohominid,

    The CPU usage is a restriction of the jQuery itself and nothing to do with the WordPress plugin code itself.
    I’m restricted to the jQuery coding they provide. I have seen some issue tickets regarding this and i’m sure its something they (Zurb) will address in future updates.
    As and when they do, they will be updated to the plugin by us (Virtual Pudding).

    What I’m wondering is, is there a way to disable the timer animation completely, but still have autoplay? I’m wondering this because I have Flex Slider on another site that has autoplay on but only uses 8% CPU in Firefox. Different beast, I realize. 🙂

    As far as i’m aware, the autoplay and timer run hand-in-hand. Disabling the timer disables the autoplay.

    I’ll be honest, the cpu isn’t really highlighted in the zurb documentation and it wasn’t something I was alerted to within the development of the plugin.

    Its not great, i agree.
    I’m sure this will be addressed in future development of the jQuery code.
    In the case it is not, I would personally look into an alternative jQuery method for the plugin. New sliders are created everyday. The plugin would continue to operate and no-one loses their slides they have already implemented. It would just be a case that the orbit slider, does no longer include the zurb orbit code.

    Sorry i can’t be of any further help on this.
