- When I add the traditional whisker menu to the panel, the CPU gets exceptionally high (CPU gets high with certain panel items (very) high CPU, laptop overheating and quick battery drain)
( I removed the traditional whisker menu because I noticed the cpu dropped significantly when I removed it from panel)
- when I press a button on my laptop to disable microphone, nothing happens. I can't enable/disable laptop microphone from keyboard. (this used to work correctly over a month ago)
- when I increase screen brightness, it shows the icon of a bell. the progress bar works and it does increase / decrease my brightness. (this used to work correctly)
all these things started happening about early april.
I suspect the bug to be in wrapper-2.0 because wrapper 2.0 seems to use a lot of resources when I hadd certain items to the panel.
My desktop environment is XFCE
inxi -b gives me:

however is there a way to repair manjaro instead of doing a clean reinstall?
it used to work correctly, also when I load linux mint from another HDD, everything works.
this is a screenshot of the cpu with the whisker menu added to the panel, and the brightness adjustment (with the bell icon)
