System Idle Process for WinXP

#2
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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
