Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

When you enable the visual feedback function of the touch pad, the GDI resource consumption increases.

Disable the visual feedback function.

The visual feedback function is provided as a tutorial function with the animation for beginners so that they can easily understand and operate the touch pad. As the factory default setting, it is disabled. Sony recommends disabling the visual feedback function when you get accustomed to the operation.

When the visual feedback function is enabled, the following resources are consumed:
SYSTEM 5%
USER 5%
GDI 39%

The system resource is also consumed. However, this is a separate issue from the insufficient system resource problem.

In the catalog, the visual feedback function is described.
The following description is from the catalog (Page 19 of the PCG-Z505Fx, PCG-N505, PCG-505V common catalog).

You can see and hear what you have done with the touch pad by animations and sounds. You feel secure what you are doing and can easily learn the functionality.
------------------------ End ------------------------------

Since this function is provided as a tutorial function for beginners, it is disabled when shipped.
