    Question Emac getting very slow and windowserver taking 83% cpu!!!
    I experiencing this problem for almost two weeks now...
    After beeing on safari for an half an hour, my system getting very slow and the spinning wheel appered. So I force to quit safari c'ause it's not responding, after that it's entourage tha's not responding.. so I force to quit.

    Nothing change, my emac still slow, so I looked at the istat widget and i noticed that the «windowserver» taking almost 83% of my cpu and the overall cpu is goint to 97-98%.

    What's the problem????
