task manager

2 probs

1 the top of the task manager window has disappeared

2 my little laptop keeps showing lots of activity under Processes and the culprit seems to be System Idle Process which is showing Cpu usage around the 90 % mark or more.

Any ideas?

problem 1 solved.
I think it's brilliant the way people help on this forum.The link solved the task manager window problem.
Is it alright or helpful for the cpu usage to be frequently running at 92% for the System idle process?

If absolutely no processes were running on your machine the System Idle Processes would be 100% !!

It just means the percentage of the available processes NOT being used.

Yes -I understand.Thank you.
wouldn't it make more sense to describe it as unused resources?
