    Wow! You are using about 150% of your clock!! I'd repair permission. You may want to call apple and see if they say anything about it. Hope it's not some hardware problem.

    I'm assuming you've got a single processor machine. That kind of an activity monitor report is perfectly normal for a dual CPU Mac. Total CPU use adds up to 200% (assuming both CPUs are maxed), and individual processes can use more than a 100%, meaning they're using more capacity than just one CPU provides.

    Anyway, it's probably some kind of math bug in activity monitor. I'd just try restarting.

    I'm on a single-processor 15" 1.5GHz G4 Powerbook, on OSX10.4.2.

    I repaired permissions last week, and that's the first time I've ever seen anything like that. I'm pretty sure it was just a one-off glitch with Activity Monitor and MS Update installer. Current CPU usage is about 15% now :D

    The AutoUpdater took forever to check for updates, and the MS Crash Reporter always seems to crash when Word crashes :D So, I'm pretty sure it was a fault with the MS Software.

    It was writing to the HD at that point, at about 30Mb/sec.


    I posted that more as a humourous thing, rather than a "help!!!!!!!!!!" thing :)

    I often get that for about 5 seconds after waking up from sleep with the power adapter disconnected.. Although I never have more than 150 hours.
