Trying to diagnose why my computer suddenly comes to a CPU standstill (somehow related to plugging in the computer to power packs / recharging).
One thing that has prevented me from diagnosing the rootcause is that resource monitor (resmon.exe) shows that random applications (teatimer.exe, launchy, explorer) suddenly become cpu hogs and spike up in usage (e.g. 50% CPU usage) - but that if i close one of them than other programs immediately spike up in CPU usage (e.g. if i close down e.g. teatimer.exe then suddenly explorer moves to CPU usage of 50%). So resource monitor doesnt seem to show the "underlying cause" why there is a CPU constraint... How wld i diagnose this? let me know your thoughts!
