I've been playing with #Meshroom on my always-on computer and had to run other errands, and left it "idle" for >1d in a closed room.
It turns out that "idle" CPU usage for Meshroom is ~400% CPU while "doing nothing" and reported total time of >160h, and the room was nicely heated up a few °C above other rooms.
I wonder how much this would cost me...
