Flash player CPU Usage - Macromedia Flash Player

Does the flash player consume quite a lot of CPU usage even when there is no events or actions happening? i have a application developed where there is no ENTERFRAME, SETINTERVAL or Mouse LISTENERS, but still the CPU usage runs up to 70-80% i tried all sorts to cut this down but all my efforts are in vain. This application builds a list of car details on a for loop nearly to 200+, i understand at that point of time the CPU usage would go up but why is that state maintained almost to 75%. Any thoughts on this?...

    The only thing I can seem to dig up that helped was lowering the frame rate
    from 30 to 15. This cut back a bit. There are some other small optimization
    tricks that slightly help but none of them seem to be a real solution.

    There are a few articles which are out of date stating that flash player uses
    100% of the available CPU until it is called on by another application. I did
    some tests with applications running and a flash website running in a browser
    and as I quit the applications the browser did start to take up more CPU. It
    seems like there is some truth in this.

    When I download the Flash Player 8 & 9 security.pdf it goes into saying that
    Flash player has now created quotas on what the amount of memory and CPU it
    will use. So that negated this thought.

    So basically I came up with a whole lot of nothing. It is exceptionally hard
    to test this stuff and the effect it will have on peoples computers in a live
    environment with no doentation or answers to this.

    IF ANYONE has an answer to this it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi David

    Many thanks for taking some effort on this. Even the frame rate didn't helped much... Lets wait if some one has any concrete answer for this.
