100 % CPU usage ????

Everytime I use mandrake and I see that cpu usage is always at 100 % and there is no program running.
If there is any process I need to stop to have less CPU used.

I am using a laptop and it gets really hot (celeron processor).

Any ideas how I can avoid the hot laptop, in windows it is possible to identify the processes that use most CPU.

My installation is a simple workstation one.

Even though, it might be hard to identify the process, please give me some clue,

What do you mean its hard to find what process is using what or 100% of your cpu? What program or command are you using to find out, if any? If you use top it shows you all processes running, memory usage, cpu usage and so on....
