what does W+L do and how do you do it?
It's Windows Key (aka Super key) + L shortcut to open the Cinnamon Debugger GUI application aka Looking Glass aka Melange. There are easier shortcuts to restart Cinnamon.

Ctrl-Alt-Esc is one.

Another is Alt-F2 to bring up the run dialog and then type r and press enter.

Right Click on the panel, click troubleshoot and then click restart cinnamon is another way.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

I am experiencing high cpu usage in the 60-80% range on all 8 threads with no activity.
cinnamon --replace is doing this.
I have seen this issue before and I have tried everything that worked before, but nothing works.
I removed all applets. I had some bad applets before.
I tried a desktop reset with alt+ctrl+esc.

Anyone else seeing this?

I upgraded from mint 19 beta to mint 19 full and this started happening.
Maybe you won't believe, but I uninstalled the Bluetooth process that checks all the time for new devices and, suddenly, all worked fluently.
I read the problem here: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/i ... -363224206
