    hallo
    tried to find anser with the search but couldn't find
    well, I have macbook 13" for a six mouth now
    (my first mac:apple:) and it was great
    I usely work with "Cubase 4" and I worked on 2 program at a time
    and the cpu was great, he didn't even worked hard at all
    but now I have problem to hear even one project
    and it's only one program working
    on the cpu meter it seem very very high
    but with no reason

    where do I have a cpu meter on the osx
    and where can I see what the cpu spent on?
    (somthing like Alt+Ctrl+Del on windoes)
    and if anione have an idea how to check if somthing is wrong on the computer or any kind of a software that can tell me what's wrong, that will be great

    thanx

    Built in, goto the activity monitor.

    Finder-->Applications-->Utilities-->Activity Monitor

    There's a "CPU" tab at the bottom.

    activity monitor also shows all your computer processes. look through them to see if any of them is "going nuts", and using up all your CPU. If you find a rogue program. uninstall it and install it again.
