I've been experiencing processor spikes since the upgrade to Hardy, they don't come right away but it' starting to get annoying. What basically happens is my processor starts getting utilized up to 80% - 100% on one processor then moves 50% if its utilization to the 2nd processor, after that they start passing the utilization around like some game.

In the system monitor graph, it looks like two alternating sine curves.

The only way I was able to get rid of the problem is by either restarting the system or restarting the gui, either way I have to end the current session to clear the slate.

Does anyone have any ideas on what could be the real problem here?
