Has any one had this problem? I keep my activity monitor up while I work and I recently noticed that I have this "kernal_task" eating up 140 mb of my memory when I try to quit the process it gives me this warning: "The process kernel_task is owned by root. Quitting this process may adversly affect the performance of your computer. You need to authorize as an administrative user to kill the process." I'm not sure if I should just quit it to see what happens, but then again I'm on my work computer and dont want to screw it up. Is there anything I can do?
