    Hi all,

    Has anyone else seen a problem in Snow Leopard where a process called configd starts to use close to 100% of one CPU randomly? If so, any advice on how to fix it? It's a root process, so I'm hesitant to just kill it. Restarting the computer takes care of it, but it always comes back after a few hours.

    I'm using the original uniMBP (with the removable battery) on SL. Needless to say, this just destroys my battery life.

    Thanks, and any advice would be much appreciated. Searching the forums and the interweb hasn't gotten me anywhere...

    Huh. I don't know if this is the issue, but I looked at my network preferences and apparently there were about 100 copies of the network configuration for my AT&T aircard. I erased all of them but 1, so we'll see if that helps.

    I also noticed that every time I start the aircard software, it creates a new one. This could get annoying, but I'll do some digging for that answer separately.

    Thanks for the help and I'll let you know if it solves the issue.
