Okay, that was just a shot in the dark for me. I searched Yahoo and got those directions.
But there have been posts in the suseforums.net about beagle disabling and some posts about speeding up SUSE there that gave the specific directions to disable the cron job for beagle's index builder. And others on how to completely uninstall beagle but I just don't recommend that as it's tied into the SUSE Kickoff and Gnome Main Menu as well as I think a Firefox extension. I just don't see it slowing things down if you just deactivate the cron job for its indexing and then once in a while reactivate it to let it build its index for any changes.
It's not something I install on purpose on other distros but as long as it's built into so many things in SUSE I figure just adjusting that thing so it doesn't run at login or, like it does, all of a sudden while you're doing other things, would do what's needed to save resources.
