Stupid iPad.  When create vms with pvs and they power up it creates about 40% CPU load when only 5 start up.  I can't imagine 60 all at the same time.   So wondering if theree is a problem or is this usual?

I am not sure but supposedly it is very good.   And it is only 5 vms with no other load. That is what is so strange
