When building a project in VSCode 1.18 the build task is active, also when building itself is ok.
The CPU load is 50%, so the computer becomes very slow.
When uploading, the build process is ok, but also there the task is running and needs to stop manually.
Update: this happens only on my MacBookPro15, on my old one there are no problems
Hm… I can’t reproduce it
Could you restart VSCode and try again?

I make a complete new installation of Pio and vscode, but now I can’t start because
there is a connection timeout to PIOHome
Just close/open PIO Home again

Meanwhile it works, but the problem with the task persists. That is crazy.
Had this happen to me on the CLI, I left it, turns out it was the update process being incredibly slow, took like +5min to do the updates.

Yes, the update (Core and Platforms) is in the moment terrible slow also on Atom. I think that is also a reason for the timeouts. Meanwhile I have the Task-Problem also on my other Mac, it seems it comes with an update, but I don’t now which one (VSCode, C++ Tools, Pio ???).

Any solution for the problem?
Do you have multiple PIO Cores in a system? Could you try manually
$ pio update from CLI?

bash: $: command not found
stefans-mbp:ETC OSC 3 sstaub$

Meanwhile I figured out that this problem occurs only with the Mac version.
On Windows there are no problems.
I use macOS and can’t reproduce it

Users of the macOS version should not update to High Sierra 10.13.2 when you want to avoid problems with terminal. The guys from VSC are looking for a solution.

It seems that the problem will solved with version 1.19 of VSCode.

The last version of VS Code Insider solves the problem. The normal version will released soon.
