Hello Bas
As a forever newbie i see your problem. As end user I changed to Google calendar for 
me and my family, after having had to use risky Outlook (and Explorer!) for a 
generation at my employer. That was after having tried to use Kontact for a period.
I really do not know if this helps anything with hour CPU problem...
However, our life became much easier and the colors makes it very clear who's doing 
what and what we do together. Excellent. Works well with Kubuntu.
