I'm not an IT guy, but I am having problems with high CPU usage.  Always
over 90% on a fairly new install of Ubuntu running on a Pentium 4 on a
Toshiba Satellite 1905-s301.  What I did come to realise is that it
happens only when I 'look' at the system monitor resources.  I updated
the preferences: graph update rate to 10 sec, Process update rate to
17sec, and File system to 29sec.  Now my CPU History graph slips by at a
cool 15%.

I think I am OK for now.
