Have been using my new Thinkpad 10 for few hours and found the process On screen display drawer is using 30 to 40 % of cpu Is that normal? Can limit the cpu process to 10% or disable it?

Same issue here on ThinkPad X1 Yoga, but for some strange reason it started just today (20170622) after a regular windows update and restart laptop's fan was so high that I checked Task manager and found same stuff like 2x-3x % CPU usage for no obvious reason.
So I Ended the task from Task Manager (on Windows 10), and stopped the service "Lenovo Hotkey Client Loader" from services.msc, and made it to be "Manual" not "Automatic".

Same here ... wouldn't it be awesome, if Lenovo would provide a solution for this? I tried to find the related installation package, but were not able to find it. It would be nice, if we could also uninstall unwanted / no longer working components.

I will try that ... are there maybe more superfluous software packages that should be removed? I wish there were a list ... and unfortunately most of the installed packages are hidden in Windows 10's "Remove Program" feature.

This is still a problem for me, even with up to date drivers as of January 2019. It almost always occurs upon Resume after suspending my laptop. CPU usage for the offending EXE is pegged at 100%. I have to "End Task" in Task Manager to recover. Of course, because the tposd exe is taking up so much CPU it takes forever to navigate/refresh windows Task Manager.
Please fix this, Lenovo!

Had the same isue after the latest windows update to 1809.
The fix is to find the service and change it from Automatic to Automatic Delayed.
From looking at why..... it appears the service starts before the full initialisation of the antivirus service which causes a loop and lock.
Setting it to delayed causes the antivirus to fully load which then accepts the requests of the Hot Key Client Loader.
