macOS App Nap preventing background fetching

Infuse on macOS takes App Nap feature very aggressively even when connected to the charger. The second you move your cursor to a different app, like Safari, Infuse enters App Nap, which stops metadata fetching. This is not ideal.

Another thing I noticed is that Infuse will not fetch metadata or scan the library in the background during active playback, which is not ideal, especially for the macOS version.

Today’s 7.3.2 update includes better handling for this.

In essence, Infuse will be able to continue scanning as long as needed while connected to power.

While on battery power, scanning will be limited to 5 minutes.
