So how do you restart it?
Authored by: Ruleryak on Apr 03, '03 07:45:54AM

It was only obvious if you're used to using the terminal. You'll need to launch your terminal app, then type "top" and hit enter. Look on that list (you may have to lengthen the window to see it, but most likely not) for "SytemUISe". To the left of that name is a 3 or 4 digit number, which is it's process ID. When you know that number, press q to stop top, then type "kill ###", where ### is the ID from SytemUIServer. Run top again to be sure it took effect. If it did you should see that the idle is taking up most of the processor again and systemUIServer is back to 0 or 1%.
