Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Running absolutely nothing, my system monitor states that all four cores of my AMD Phenom II 945 are at 100%, although no individual process can be traced to cause this. At most, Firefox takes 4% of my CPU-usage. So what's up with that? I'm running Ubuntu 12.10.
