M1 MacBook Air running hot - Python running in background?

The last couple days my MBA has been getting hot underneath pretty quickly with no real usage other than Safari.   I checked my activity monitor and Python seems to be eating up a lot of CPU, but I have no Python scripts running.  I use VSCode but that has been completely closed down since yesterday.  Is there a way to safely close these items or figure out why they are hogging up so much CPU?

I have Miniconda installed, in addition to the standard Python 2.7 that came with the machine

Thanks
