Question about the swap file...???

*I've been watching my pc's CPU at times in is lower than at other time, 
I am guessing when it is performing  a task, it inscreases say from 16.5 
too 48, then drops back to a lower rate...But the Swap file shows  0%, 
all of the time, would this speed up things if the swap file would take 
the load away from the CPU at times...???

If this is true, can someone suggest to me on how to get the swap to be 
used when it is needed...???

Thanks for any help on this issue...
