[IDV #WIL-310768]: IDV consuming all my cycles when its not doing anything.

Hi Eric,

When this property is set you should see a message printed to the stdout:
"Setting minFrameCycleTime to:1000"

If you aren't getting that message then either you are not running with the 
latest build or
your property setting is failing for some reason.

You can also try turning off the web based monitor with:
idv -Didv.monitorport=none

Does the IDV work OK on other machines? 
Do you have the most recent graphics card drivers installed?

Perhaps you can run this using jprofiler to see where the cycles are being
