    Computer dragging? Running Amarok?

    I noticed today that my machine was dragging big time. It couldn't even keep up with my typing. I ran "top" and noticed that Amarok was consuming 75% of my CPU cycles, despite the fact that it wasn't even playing a song. I killed it, and all was well.

    Not sure why this happens, but I just wanted to put this out there.

    Alas, issues like this sometimes can't be solved. Music players are heavy. Try restarting the computer, and/or reinstalling Amarok. Sometimes stuff gets gummed up. If it spikes right after you do something (everytime), it may be a bug.

    It's quick just from closing Amarok.

    I don't understand why a simple mp3 player is so heavy...
