iCUE uses 20% to 25% CPU when idling

I'm running iCUE 3.38.61 on a "MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2020, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports)" with macOS Big Sur.

 

With iCUE running but idling with on visible window on the desktop, then the iCUE process is continuously using 20% to 25% CPU.

 

How to keep it running but without the CPU usage?

 

Or is it okay to just quit iCUE when not using it?

Update:

 

I was experiencing this other issues to do with the mouse not showing up in iCUE [1]. After the mouse finally showed up in iCUE, after iCUE restarting, then the iCUE CPU usage at idle went down to about 4%. Which is much better than 20% to 25% :-)

 

So maybe the mouse not showing up originally was causing the constant extra CPU?
