I notice the CPU usage still exceeds 30% on my fairly chunky machine. How do others cope with this issue?

The mouseover css class change (which triggers CPU consumption) is processed by the internal handleMouse() function - /source/lib/system/control.js, line 597 - you have to modify this one to disable mouseover styles.

setting the following global variable causes handleMouse() to ignore onmousemove/onmouseover/onmouseout events, which greatly reduces CPU usage on grid mouse movement:
AW.ignoreMouse = true;
side-effects include: tooltips break [maybe there are others?]
