Why livewallpaper process isn't kill when I disable it with the indicator ?

Asked by leosw on 2012-11-03

When I switch livewallpaper off with my livewallpaper-indicator, the livewallpaper process is not killed.
But if I kill it (with system-monitor), it will be started when I turn it on via indicator.

Why it isn't killed (because use a little part of my RAM and CPU) ?

Killing and restarting the livewallpaper means generating thousands of stars, creating a desktop window and doing all those other things required to show the wallpaper. It means also getting a completely "new" wallpaper because it would not continue the previously visible state of the wallpaper. That's the reason why it only hides the wallpaper instead of killing the application.

Can you help with this problem?
