this will help. there are several daemons that can hog system for brief
periods and as long as you make note of what you disable, you can restore
them one by one to see if that is a part of problem. especially if any
wait for a response before freeing cpu's.

instead of changing timing, just disable auto checking. then you know for
sure. offline will definitely be a way to narrow down problem.

a problem with top is it does not show which cpu is being used by what,
and this can be a problem in troubleshooting.
in a free world without fences, who needs gates.
help microsoft stamp out piracy - give linux to a friend today.
to mess up a linux box, you need to work at it.
to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look* at it.
