Hello! All of a sudden (today) my macbook has started running super slow (taking like 30 seconds to switch applications, etc. I looked in activity monitor, and it shows kernal_task at almost 400 mb! Is that normal, cause i dont think so... The only thing i've changed since yesterday when it was running fine was installing the Veoh play for mac..... Thanks for the help everyone, Ryan P.S. I restarted an kernel_task is only at around 56 mb, with all the same applications, etc running...... What would make it spike that that up to 400 !?!? Also: I noticed that the other programs (adium, firefox, etc) that were running before restart were at around 100mb. After restart, they are half that even though i am using them the same way. Why??
