System Idle Process in XP's Taskmangaer.

Has there ever been reports of this hogging resources in XP?

I assume it's something that uses the CPU for other OS tasks when not in operation by the user. The problem is even when I'm using the computer it uses 97-99% of CPU.

Can anyone tell me more about this?

  1. Emmmm... the "System Idle Process" actually shows "free" CPU resources, not "used" resources. It also has influence over HLT commands and power-saving CPU features. In other words: Leave it be.
  2. Thanks... I guess I thought wrong....
