I just upgraded to WinXp Pro and I noticed that my CPU never goes idle. Unless I'm doing something, it sits around 10% but never drops below that. According to Task Manager, nothing is using the cycles...Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

It's XP's patented Host of Services That You'll Never Use and are Completely Unessential!

Welcome to Windows XP. You can tweak it for better performance, but that might not even make a dent in your processor load.
