I just updated to 6.1.7 and running Mac OSX 10.9.2. For some reason, every time I start up Max (no patches open) the CPU is boosted to 100% (or higher) on my activity moniter, lowers down to like 12% after about 2 minutes, and then boosts back up again to like 112% as soon as I open up any patch. So, obviously, when I try and do anything, Max crashes. What is going on? I have seen other forum topics with this issue, but nothing that has been posted has helped my situation.
Is there any solution for this?
