this forum's comments are largely the same as mine<br>
(wtf?), with suggestions to use a web search engine<br>
to get info and replies that the web search engine<br>
pretty much circularly refers to this topic.<br>
† † The irritation is that kondemand seems to take<br>
20% CPU time.<br>
<br>
† † One user claims he's shut down his laptop and<br>
removed the battery and then restored everything and<br>
rebooted with the result that kondemand then takes<br>
only 1% of CPU time.<br>
