Description of problem:
Sometimes the GNOME applet for notebook battery check, send an erroneus warning
of "low battery". After that the CPU go fast in a saturation state indeed the
system resources monitored with "top" utility, show that the load average
increase from 0,2/0,3 to 2 or 3. The only solution that I've found is the
"windows solution" : reboot the machine (sigh!)...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All the package installed (except *) become from RHN.
The kernel version, is the last: 2.4.18-18.8.0
Usually I work with the following programs all running:
Evolution, Opera(*), gnome-terminal, Xemacs.
what process is using 100% cpu ?
