        Since I upgraded my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) to Catalina (10.15) I saw `powerd` having a CPU consumption of 100%+. I saw tousands of entries of

        standard 06:35:48.581361+0200 powerd Process powerd.113 TimedOut UserIsActive "com.apple.powermanagement.wakeschedule" age:00:00:02  id:38654742421 [System: PrevIdle DeclUser kDisp]

        in my console.


        The temporary workaround for me was to enable the wake schedule in System Preference -> Energy Saver -> Start up or wake.


        Maybe thist helps somebody. Also this looks like a serious bug to me.
