If you don't want to reboot, you can terminate X and restart X only

You can use the top command to figure out what process is 'sucking up the cpu'.

If the process is X... that is your X Windows (KDE, Gnome, whatever). Some suggestions would be to reduce colour depth (number of colours), use TOP to see which processes are taking the CPU.

If the process X takes the CPU and it is stuck at 100%, what actions did you do immediately prior to that ?

My CPU spikes to 100% occasionally... Sometimes it sits there if I am doing development work with Eclipse, or a database...
