    After some local testing I found out what is causing the high CPU usage by NVIDIA Container on my system.
    For most of the time CPU usage is very low, however if the PC is allowed to sleep after waking up the high CPU usage kicks in. Think I'll log this with NVIDIA tomorrow.

    A desktop PC doesnt really need sleep mode, its either off or on. Sleep is really designed for laptops. Only devices I let sleep is the monitor.

    DooGie....try an experiment.....

    Let it sleep Wake it up and verify high CPU. Without doing anything else:

    To restart your graphics driver at any time, just press Win+Ctrl+Shift+B: the screen flickers, there's a beep, and everything is back to normal immediately.

    Check CPU......

    Before I read your post TC I'd just tried seeing what happened if I ended the NVIDIA Container task. It didn't shut down but the CPU cycles returned to very low. So it's definitely waking from sleep that causes it.

    UPDATE

    I tried what you suggested TC and that also worked.

    Suspect that when the PC sleeps, the GPU does not, if I'm saying that correctly. And the 2 get disconsynchronated.

    Lotta stuff running in the GPU that has to sync.

    Mine, and this is light.

    So, what's the consensus with this driver over 425.31?
    I'm on 19H1 but use 1080ti so most games run better with dx11 on pascal.

    Fixed my nvdisplay.container.exe high CPU usage by deleting the following folders,

    C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Display.NvContainer\plugins\LocalSystem\DisplayDriverRAS
    C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\DisplayDriverRAS

    Use task manager to shutdown nvdisplay.container.exe and let it restart.

    Seems like the added telemetry plugin "DisplayDriverRAS" is locking up and causing high cpu usage in nvdisplay.container.exe...

    Tbh, I dont really see much difference between DX11 and DX12, so I'll stick with 11 for now.
    Not much on a modern 4/8 4.00 GHz+ CPU, but DX12 will alleviate that bottleneck on my lower clocked 5820k by utilizing 6/12 of my cpu/threads instead. Marrakech and Mumbai are the most CPU intensive maps in the game so that's where DX12 is really good.

    Unfortunately I get crashes in DX11 now aswell. This driver messed something up in Hitman 2. I can play for a second in DX12 before it crashes, while DX11 plays for maybe a few minutes before freezing. What's really annoying is that part of the game is still running in the background and won't shut down unless I restart the computer. Do you see the same behavior?

    Regarding the high cpu usage for nvcontainer.exe:

    We have been able to reproduce the bug consistently now and are currently testing a fix.

    They still haven't acknowledged or mentioned the Hitman 2 bug though. If you could @swarfega I would appreciated it if you filled this driver survey so we can get this higher on the priority list. I am afraid this will be an ongoing issue going forward if they don't acknowledge it, and it's going to be annoying for Hitman fans once Windows 1903 hits public PCs in May because of WDDM 2.6 support and without an official fix.
