My Question or Issue

 

Hi there,
whenever I close Spotify it does not close properly. No matter whether I close it via clicking the X, using the menu or the icon in my system tray, it remains an active task and hogs up to 50% of my CPU. During that time attempting to start another instance of Spotify leads to an error message telling me that Spotify is not responding.

If I end the process "Spotify Premium" via the task manager I am able to once again start Spotify. It once again hogs about 28% of my CPU, though I'm not sure if this has to do with the bug. I assume it is because I have no idea why Spotify (when doing absolutly nothing) would grab that much processing power.

I have already re-installed Spotify multiple times to attempt a fix. No dice, unfortunately.
