Bug Description

I've been trying to figure out what processes are active even on an idle machine to try and save power consuming wake-ups. I attached health-check to the xbrlapi process for 10 minutes on a totally idle machine and observed quite a lot of open/close and socket activity (over 2 per second) which I think is a little odd for an idle system.

To measure activity I used:

sudo apt install health-check
sudo health-check -p 1696 -c -f -r -d 360

where -p 1696 specified the PID of the process.

Attached is a log of activity.

Should xbrltty be so active on an idle system?
