    I've been having a problem where Stickies will sometimes misbehave. Quite often it starts consuming 100% CPU and I have to force quit. Console doesn't show anything. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks

    I'd move .plist for it and make a new one to see if it persists. Use Spotlight (Search for com.Apple.Stickies.plist, I think...)

    You should be able to delete it out right as well.

    And if it continues, use /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor to get a sample of it via View->Sample Process (after selecting it in the list while it is misbehaving). The results may be give some insight into what it's doing.
