Profilers will use a huge amount of CPU because of everything they have to do for measuring every AddOn you're running.

Anyway: Saying "it's using so little CPU" and then ignoring that is rather dismissive - people running 200+ AddOns which do this are suddenly using a metric ****-ton of CPU for no reason whatsoever. If you aren't currently generating a pulse, the frame should be hidden so its OnUpdate will not be run.
Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".
