Dapper: 100% CPU when idle SOLVED???

I've seen that once, a friend of mine had it on his laptop. It was
related to the drivers (or rather some tool) for his video card (ATI).
There was a process named fireglx or something like that (can't
remember exactly). It was not shown on the process monitor, but "top"
showed it. So, if you still have it, just run top and see if it's the
culprit. If so, kill it with -9.
