    The issue I'm having with my MBA after 10.5.4 update is that intermittently the cursor becomes very jumpy, for example: when moving it from left side of the screen to the right, it jumps directly to the right. Very annoying. Since the issue is intermittent I don't think it has anything to do with mouse speed or anything. The issue can happen with both the trackpad and bluetooth mighty mouse.

    I'm running a MBA standard config with 10.5.4.

    Any ideas?

    Hmm, seems that the issue might be due to a core shutdowns... Is this what a core shutdown looks like?

    Would have been easier if the Activity Monitor was sorted in descending order based on the % of CPU use.

    I imagine so. I get jumpy cursors in warm weather quite a lot, especially when the fan whirring like a demented hamster.

    Yeah, my friend has to keep his air in an air conditioned room if he wants to continously use it without the core shutting down
