    High, I just came from work and woke up my laptop and it was a bit hot (70C) and processor running (system) at 50% not doing nothing, also when i open system monitor it shows me the proces but i cannot identify which one is doing the party since it doesnt show it (see screen shot)

    Is this the first time you open your Macbook today? (recovering from sleep or opening it up by pressing the power button)

    As far as I know, it must be the daily/weekly maintenance of Mac OS X (The first thing your system does each days, weeks and months).

    But for the hpdot4d, I am clueless.

    HP makes good printers but have always sucked on the software side.
