    there is a program called "activity monitor" which is located in applications>utilities (or find it via spotlight)

    the widget "istat pro" is also extremely handy.

    Yeah, Activity Monitor is the way to go, and select "All Processes".

    If you're a bit nerdy, you can fire up teh Terminal and type "top" :eek:
