    My 20" iMac C2D has been running perfectly until today, where I notied that for some reason my 2.33 GHz CPU was being permantly on 100% usage, even when I had not a single app running.

    Another thing is, is when I use iStat Pro or iStat Nano to check processes, it closes dashboard, removes the widget, and says there was an error. I have sent 3 reports to Apple.

    Heres a picture of acticity moniter. Anyone know what is going on? There seems to be a PPC app called Dashboard Client that is using my CPU.

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    edit: sorry i cant seem to get the picture to work correctly

    Have you tried rebooting? Macs are computers too, they need to be rebooted from time to time.

    I think all your CPU must be used up by some rogue "CPU monitoring tool".

    The dashboard is speeding up. Just reboot and it should be fine.
