Hey all, I was wondering if anyone could give me a little insight into the kernel_task process on my new 2.0 GHz i7 15" MPB. On my old 2008 unibody macbook, kernel_task barely hits over 150 MB of real memory usage while on here, upon booting, I'm using about 450 MB real memory, steadily rising to 500+ MB. Following what I read in another post, I preformed a safe boot and looked at the activity monitor. Everything was normal, kernel_task was in the upper 100's of real memory used. Anybody have an ideas why the new macbook is doing this and any ideas on ways I can roll back and try to fix it? Thanks!
