Today however I don't have anything that spikes the CPU other than building
livecode standalones, and all my machines are multi core.

Okay, and Wuala is just plain a pig. I suppose that is because it is
written in Java. It sucks huge amounts of energy even when it has nothing
to synchronize, but there is only one alternative (spideroak) for keeping
machines synchronized that does the encryption at the user end instead of
the server.  In my quad-core i7 macbook retina, it keeps my fans running
even at idle.   It seems better behaved the new macbook.
