    Find Activity Monitor in your /Applications/Utilities folder, select "All Processes" from the dropdown menu, and sort by CPU. What is the process that is hogging?

    I forgot about activity monitor. it was my powershute software for the aps ups. weird the software has not been updated in a long time but I bet it started when there was a message about loss of power.
    the software has not been updated since 2006.
