Is this normal? I never noticed this before but now whenever I run Chess the activity monitor says the an app called sjeng uses like 99% of the CPU.

I actually just ran Chess and the activity monitor myself. My CPU was bouncing around %60-%80 which isn't too far off from yours. Honestly I don't know why it takes up so much CPU though.

I guess the computer really just wants to kick our asses.

QUOTE Thanks
