FWI, and I'm not saying this is the problem...
Three days ago our senior editor's Mac (OSX) came to a grinding,
nearly unusable condition, in all apps, slow keyboard responses, slow
We ran "top" from the terminal. Behold: no running apps were eating
the CPU...but the kernal was taking 40%...very unusual, we had never
seen this before.
We thought it was Dashboard at first.. (he's got a zillion
widgets...). but the only thing that fixed it was finally running
permissions repair. And, indeed the repair report revealed some
permissions corruption in some very low-level system files... these
were repaired and after re-boot, problem went away.
