    CPU Is Running Strangely High

    I have a Dell Precision 390 running a Intel Core 2 Quad 4300 processor. I used to have Windows 7 installed on it and everything was running normal. Now I have Ubuntu 13.04 and the processor is constantly running at 60+%.

    Is that normal, or is there something wrong?

    Thanks for the help.

    You should look at what's using that much CPU:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install htop
    htop

    Unity and Compiz were running at around 80% each always. I mainly use this machine as a server so I installed Cinnamon and uninstalled Unity. CPU is running at a normal 5% now.

    Thanks for the tip about htop. Awesome tool.
