GUI eats too many CPU power

My system: P4 HT 3.0 GHz, 1G ram, Radeon 4650 1G AGP, XP XP3
When I minimize fold.it window it runs in background over 2x faster!
I checked in precessexplorer that .exe process eats 50% (full 1 HT "core") on IDLE (just showing screen, nothing running, no mouse movements). When I run any function/script then game_library.dll process/precesses kicks in and eating rest of CPU. When I minimize window then .exe takes ~0% and 2 of .dll gets all CPU.
I think there is much to improve.
I also noticed that my GPU is mostly used in... ~1%. Periodically it kicks a <1s spike ~20% (not sure that is my system alone or fold.it usage)
I hope "some" of GUI showing calculations can be done mostly in GPU not CPU alone.
