Good article on process management System
In the midst of looking for something else, I stumbled across an 'older' (May 2001) article concerning power management with OS X on PowerBooks. In the text of the article, there's a fairly good example of how to use "ps" and "grep" and a couple of other UNIX commands to get a handle on what may be going on with your system if you're experiencing slowdowns or fast-draining batteries.

If you're interested, head over to O'Reilly's web site and read Mac OS X and Battery Life by Derrick Story. Although Derrick wrote the story, the majority of the content is from a note submitted by Peter Fraterdeus, a long-time Mac user and developer. Peter gives some very good examples of how to use the features of the core UNIX system to identify potential trouble spots. Most of the article is relevant not just to PowerBooks, but to Mac OS X users in general.
