I had a similar issue with crazy CPU consumption when I used VS 
Code. The root cause for me was "autosave" and "build on save" 
settings turned on simultaneously. Basically, it was trying to 
build the entire project every time save happened, and it was 
frequent enough to overwhelm the CPU.

The fix was in: File=>Preferences=>Settings, Then 
extensions=>D:Enable Dub Linting, have to be disabled (unchecked).

Hopefully, this helps.
