    Hi all,

    I have a mid 2007 24" iMac running 10.6.3.

    I've noticed recently that after a while the machine runs slow, and checking the activity monitor the blued process (Bluetooth) is using a considerable percentage of CPU. The only bluetooth device I have installed is a Targus mouse.

    Killing the process (it automatically respawns) occasionally fixes it, but not always. A restart will fix it.

    A google search did find this post Adventures in the Clouds: blued process is killing my CPU - I followed the instructions but it didn't seem to help. I did notice that upon restart all my bluetooth devices were still in the preferences so I guess I didn't remove all the plists...

    I have removed all bluetooth devices and I'm using a wired mouse (how quaint) and I'll let you know how I go, but has anyone had any similar occurences?

    I had the blued process go haywire once. I believe I just shutdown my MBP and it fixed it. I've read iStumbler can cause that.

    Hi

    That does fix the problem but if left on, it comes back.

    If "what" left on? Bluetooth? I have mine always off and only turn it on if I need it.

    I have a Bluetooth Targus mouse - Bluetooth is always on.
