    During normal use of Leopard on my Macbook, I start hearing the fans spin up like crazy. So, I open activity monitor, and I find that a process called "Quick Look Server" is taking up about 120% of my CPU. I try force quitting it from Activity Monitor, but it just keeps comming back. I tried logging out, and it worked for a while, and now its back.

    Anybody have a solution?

    Are you using Transmission? I had the same problem, when I was using Transmission 0.91, quick look server seemed to be taking too much cpu resources. Once I quit transmission, everything goes back to normal.
