I noticed in Activity Monitor that the iCloud Photos process is stopping and restarting a few times every minute. The PID is marching up at a pretty regular pace. When a new iCloud Photos process starts up, it uses the CPU for a bit, so I'd like to stop it from running.
Is there any way (a
defaults setting?) to prevent this process from running? I don't use iCloud in any way and all of the iCloud services are unchecked in the System Preferences.
