I am running GNOME shell 3.2 on Ubuntu 11.10. After resuming from suspend, gnome shell process always consumes 100% cpu. Is there any solution for this?

what commands have you tried so far to be so sure it's the shell causing it? –  Marlon Nov 1 '11 at 17:58
system monitor shows gnome-shell process consuming 100% cpu –  Vivek Nov 1 '11 at 18:15
and what does ps -auxf | sort -nr -k 3 | head -10 shows? –  Marlon Nov 1 '11 at 20:26
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, thanks! Instructions here. –  Jorge Castro Mar 13 '12 at 14:10

I am not sure if this is the answer but do you have the gnome-shell system monitor extension installed?

I was having the same problem - High CPU usage of gnome-shell process after resuming from standby and found an article that mentioned the system monitor extension for gnome-shell... I disabled the extension and now gnome-shell never consumes large amounts of CPU after resuming.

Seems to be a bug in the system monitor extension for gnome-shell.
