It only appears to have about 3% total usage at any given time.  I have a 
torrent program running, but it is only using .5%  I can't see anything that 
is running any even small amount of memory.  Xorg is the greatest user at 2%.

So you think it is the mouse then?  The mouse is only a couple of months old.  
Microsoft scroll with no wires.  Batteries fresh.

It is worse than Microsoft 3.1 for speed.
