My laptop heats up whenever I use Mist Browser application and my BDLDaemon(Bitdefender in Mac) is going crazy, taking up 4.15 GB of RAM. So my question arises, Am I mining the blocks too? Which might be causing the heating issue.

I am not sure what you mean by mining blocks. The only way you could start mining in my opinion is if you did an operation like miner.start(1). If you feel you are mining, just do miner.stop() in your javascript console. Hope this helps.

  • Where do I write this command?

  • In your javascript console. However I doubt that this is the problem, because your console would be showing you mining operations. Like in the image I am attaching above.
