Lower CPU usage

When idle FTPbox is using more then 5% CPU on an i7-3517U @ 1,9 GHz with win7 x64.

Dropbox uses less than 0,01% when idle.

        Hey Walter,

        Thanks for reporting this. I just made a new release, and it seems that this is no longer an issue.

        The previous release would use around 4-5% of CPU when idle on my machine, similar to your case. The new release uses 0% when idle and less than 2% while synchronizing.

        I'd appreciate it if you gave this new release a try and confirmed that the issue has been addressed...

        Thank you,
        John
