comment Can laptops be used for development with IDE's? Mine is heating up too much
Assuming you're correct about the file system scan, lsof or strace would help show thefiles its scanning, and identify any possible loops in code that it might get thrown by. Top would also indicate if the issue is CPU or IO bound - if CPU; check how much free memory is available, the IDE may be garbage collecting, if its IO bound, put the machine somewhere cool and let it run for a while to finish.

What operating system are you using / What other specs does it have? I use Ubunutu on an HP Probook i5 at work and I put it through hell (Java IDEs, Maven, Multiple VirtualBox running without it batting an eyelid... it sounds like there may be more at play than simply your hardware, which should be quite capable.
