    Hi everyone,

    I have another one issue (apart of the battery lasting problem from 7-8 hours with Leopard to 5 with Lion). Every time I start Lion if the "All my files" feature on Finder is selected, the CPU usage is 80-100%. When I change the selection on Finder to whatever folder then it is going back to the normal CPU usage. But if I do again select "All my Files" the CPU is up to 80-120%.

    Do you know why this is happening and a possible fix?

    Thanks in advance,

    Although i can't give you a definite answer on this, its probably because the OS never did something like that before.

    And as far the battery problem goes, when i turn down the brightness, my mbp lasts up to 9 hours at times, while with full brightness that's easily diminished and instead it lasts like 4,5 hours (obviously that's also depending on what you're doing, but say you're just browsing a little).
