Is there anyway to reduce the power used by the Wine Server and a windows application while essentially idle?  These two threads are running about 50% of the Core doing nothing  It looks like they are in an active polling loop.

I don't think there is way to limit resource use within Crossover.

The thing is, limiting resources would be operating system thing, or a tool for the very purpose. Being a linux guy, I don't know much about such things on Mac, but googling has lead me to the following link, which might put you on the right track:
