processor usage

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a laptop (sony PCGFX340) with windows 2000.
I am curious about the processor usage of the "SYSTEM" process. Every about
5 seconds the system process uses 20 % of the processor. The graph in
"performance" (in the task manager) shows this perfectly, and I can see it
in the processes list. ANy idea of why this happens? I was doing the same
test in other computer with w2k , but there the processor is not used like
that. it stays pretty much at zero. I am running only the essential services
and processes.
