Actually I just tried quitting the kernel task on my computer (putting my money where my mouth is so to speak)
...and Activity Monitor does not allow it (the "Quit Task" button doesn't activate).
When I mentioned quitting a task in Activity Monitor in my 1st post above...I was really thinking of other tasks. The I reread the OP's post...and saw that they actually mentioned the kernel task as the problem.
So maybe the external HD idea (or booting into Safe Mode) are better things to try.
