High CPU usage running Xorg


Hi there,
I have problem on my friends machine. On mine, which has very similar processor / software everything seams to be OK so I don't know where to look for trouble shoot this one. It is PIII 866MHz, 256 MB RAM,kernel2.6.18.2-34-default #1 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux. I think it is related to some power settings - This computer hangs up in about an hour of idling and shows close to 100% CPU usage. Is there any log I can look at?

You can see what percentage of CPU time each process is using by issuing:
Code:
ps -e -o pcpu,cpu,nice,state,cputime,args --sort pcpu | sed '/^ 0.0 /d'
