    This is kind of driving me crazy. One of the processes in iStat Pro often shows up as taking up the most CPU resources, but doesn't have a text label next to it. It is the first (and fifth) process shown in the attached screen grab. What is it?

    Judging by their icons they are widgets, one of them is probably iStat itself.

    I get that too, usually when a widget is refreshing. If it reduces after a few seconds then it's nothing to worry about - but if it's a constant thing, you might want to look into which one is causing it.

    Ahhh, thanks for the replies. Makes much sense. I thought that that icon might have something to do with dashboard or the OS, but for some reason I just couldn't put two and two together. Anyway, mystery solved. Thanks a bunch.
