I use Skype for messaging only.

But it is consuming some CPU time when idle.

I need to limit the Skype process' CPU usage.

Can that be done?

I am using Linux Mint 17.2.


Update 2018-Apr-15

This library is for old Skype <= 4.3. It will not work with modern Skype for Linux.


Skype poll fix addresses this specific issue.

Prevents Skype from frantically polling so often.
