[PD] Yet another post about cpu consumption... (for Linux users)

What's the matter with line~ in a subpatch where audio has been switched
off? I think i have line~ in most of my subpatches and i have never noticed
anything wrong.

Can it be harmful to let the cpu run at full speed all the time? Or is it
just a matter of energy consumption?

Thanks for your replies!
