should it be at 90-99!!!???
Yes, the System Idle Process runs only when no other processes are using the CPU. When the CPU is idle, the System Idle Process sends special halt (HLT) instructions that temporarily suspend the CPU (which effectively saves power and keeps the CPU cool)
It's normal ... don't worry about it
Ya gotta remember though alot of the time the HLT feature doesn't work correctly. Hence why programs like Rainfall, CPUidle etc came around which are much more efficient at setting the mobo's Disconnect bit
