I had a problem with xorg running at like 30% cpu so I
found out that it was the nvidia drivers. You might
want to try this too.

I installed the following from the repositories:
  (change the above for your cpu/kernel of course)

Then ran:
sudo nvidia-glx-config enable

Rebooted (maybe you don't need to reboot?) and then
reran the xserver config:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

During which I selected the nvidia drivers, not nv.
Then, when that was done, ctrl+alt+bksp to restart X
and that seemed to work for me.
