Oh, Firefox window still draws wrong sometimes in startup. Old bug
from Firefox 3. CPU Graph takes several percents of CPU in older
computers. I wish you could set its "width" to zero and make it
lighter. You can use System Load Monitor, but it does not show
different bar for each core.

As for avoiding unnecessary load, I would set screensaver to blank
screen and make it set backlight off.
