    My uncle has a 15" top spec Macbook Pro, the CPU has over 50% usage but Activity Monitor shows nothing is using a large amount, the battery also says it is only going to get around 2 hours when it should be around 7 and to top it off the machine is running way hotter than it normally would.

    I've done a PRAM reset which worked and everything went back to normal but on the next restart it all went wrong again. I've done a SMC reset also but it didn't do a thing.

    Any ideas?

    Has he selected to SHOW ALL PROCESSES in Activity Monitor and then sorted by CPU usage?

    FYI, I did search I just couldn't find anything on this specific issue.

    Also that did work, I didn't have all processes showing just "my" processes.

    Thanks. :)
