comment “powerd” process uses a lot of CPU
Okay I'll kill it to see how that goes, next time. But I'm looking for a more permanent, long-term solution.

From how you describe it, it doesn't sound like a good solution then. I agree that restarting the Mac is often the best way to fix these runaway processes.

Yes, that's true, but it should still be below 10%. Something is making it 25% or more, that probably shouldn't be happening. Sometimes, when it hits 75%, I restart my Mac so that it drops back down to 1% or so.

comment “powerd” process uses a lot of CPU
After typing power in the Console, the last event is 3 hours ago so I don't think that should be related to the current high CPU usage from powerd? The items in the Console after filtering for powerd seem to be from when I slept/wake my Mac, and that's it.

powerd is at 25% CPU and 30 MB memory.

I don't see anything relevant in the Console. There have been no relevant items in the past 30 minutes, and filtering for powerd shows one line: 15/03/04 12:27:27.000 am kernel[0]: PM response took 3152 ms (26, powerd) which seems to be when I put the Mac to sleep.

comment Blank temperature in iOS 8 Weather app (showing just underscores)
Thanks, but the blank temperature is for the "Local" page, which AFAIK cannot be deleted.
