[Lazarus] Most efficient way for polling (TTimer, OnIdle, TIdleTimer, TThread)

I have a component that needs to poll a SimpleIPC server repeatedly (at
each 1s or so).

Currently i'm using a TTimer with a OnTimer handler that calls
FIPCServer.PeekMessage(1, True);.

Wondering if using TIdleTimer, Application.OnIdle(or AddIdleHandler) or a
separated TThread will be more efficient.

By efficiency i mean low resource usage, notebook battery friendly
