    Also my itunes is unusually high, and fluctuates between 15 and 100. How much cpu does the computer usually have i thought it was 100 but obviously not. as i almost reached 200 at some point. i have a 2.8Ghz Silver iMac

    iTunes uses a lot of CPU time when downloading, playing back video, or when using a visualization. What are you doing when iTunes is using so much CPU?

    I am only listening to music, that is why it is so strange.
