2024 sketchup pro power usage goes to very high even when idle

Hi I am having issues with my sketchup freezing when running animations, it runs fine for 2 or 3 passes the starts to lag and freeze. the model is not very complex.
I checked the power settings to performance, which keeps reverting to balanced on every startup.
I would appreciated your help.

There are animation related things we have looked at. Are you on the recent 2024.0.1 version of SketchUp?

If you are, try going into Preferences, Graphics, and choose to use the classic graphics engine, then close and reopen SketchUp, and try your animation again.

Thanks Colin I will try now.
