I am using MacFreePops to retrieve my emails from my two yahoo accounts on Apple mail. The program has a quirky nature of hogging the CPU when I close the lid and open it again. The daemon "freepopsd" hogs the CPU and memory. Whenever it happens, I use the killall command to terminate it and restart it.

However, it has become resistant now. See this screenie:

I am unable to kill this program by kill or killall, even as a superuser (sudo). I don't want to restart or relogin everytime... is there a way to terminate this nasty little program?
