Something I've done recently has messed up my cpu usage in OS X (Snow Leopard). Looking at Activity Monitor, I see normal programs and normal cpu usage (15-20%) for all user processes. But the "% System" is constantly running between 40% and 50%.
Something is clearly wrong, but I can't figure out what is using all the CPU, since Activity Monitor or top seem to only show usage contributing to the "% User" statistic.
Any ideas on where to look?
