    Hey,

    MacBook 1,83GHz - 2GB RAM

    As you can see, no process shows any activity, but the CPU shows ~50%. Where does this come from?

    When I reboot it's gone, but some time later it appears magically again. First I thought it's FrontRow, but when I avoided to start use it via the remote, the CPU activity came nevertheless.

    It doesn't bother that much, but I do notice that Mail needs somewhat longer to open a new window, which isn't the case when the machine freshly started.

    My only open apps are Mail, Firefox, Adium and iTunes (not playing).

    Not likely, but: Try running top in Terminal and see if something shows up, that Activity Monitor ignores.

    top -o cpu will sort the result based on CPU use...
