See more: XAML WPF
After scouring the internet for awhile, I may be the only one experiencing this, so here goes:
 
Whenever I change a single line in a XAML file; VS will take alot (and I mean like almost a minute) of CPU time at 50% on a dual core, to do something. It's really annoying as it slows down the system.
 
This happens if I open a new project and create the default xaml form.
 
Is there a setting or something that I'm missing? My laptop gets so incredibly hot that I almost can't use it when working in xaml. Working in code with no xaml windows seems to be ok.
 
Thanks for any help.

It depends on several factors. There was a considerable slowing down on slower machines from VS 2008 to 2010, and you did not even tell us what version did you use, so what's the use of your question?
I also suspect something could be wrong with your system. Laptops use to be too hot few years ago. My computer (I mean the only one I sometime use in my bad) is not very new, but it stays cool like James Bond, no matter what I do with it...

Solution 1

Sorry, VS 2010, with Service Pack 1.
 
Just did a clean install on the laptop in windows 7.
 
The best way I can describe it is like editing a huge VB project when you change something, it's completely recompiling the project and just bogging down the system.
 
I do like the idea of an excuse to pick up a new laptop.
 
My concern is that I don't have these types of issues in huge 2.0 C# projects, but a three file wpf 3.5 project brings the computer to a grinding halt?
