Rekordbox 6.0 Consumers my Battery Quickly

I'm a new owner of a DDJ-400 and learning to  DJ.  I'm having lots of  fun and RB has a cool layout. It's also working great, but I've noticed it really burns my battery  quickly and runs my machine quite hot.  

I have a  

  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
  • 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
  • 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
  • Radeon Pro 555 2 GB
  • Intel HD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Are there any settings or adjustments I can make in the software to reduce the battery consumption? I've read  many articles on here about CPU usage, and  the response from RB Staff is usually to explain that high CPU usage can be normal, etc. I can't argue about what CPU usage is normal, but I do know  my battery  usually  lasts a lot longer. 

Any advice?

Is rekordbox still analysing music? That would certainly use more resources. You should also verify that the DVS, lighting, lyric, and video modes are all disabled if you're not using them.
