10.5: One fix for a runaway syslogd process
Authored by: M-3 on Feb 07, '08 12:44:27PM

I didn't have this problem until I installed iStumbler today. Every time I force quit the process it would just start right back up again. My temp was between 170 and 175 degrees so I had to do something.

Knowing that iStumbler was the only new thing on my computer, I quit iStumbler and then killed the process. It came back but at .01 percent of the processor and not 91%.

After restarting iStumbler, my temperatures and processes seem normal. I can't say for sure if it was iStumbler, the Spectrum widget that goes with iStumbler, or either of them but that's how things went for me.

Oh, and I don't use Time Machine at all. I tried to but frankly I think it sucks. I'm the biggest Apple fan and have been for years but I'm sorry, Time Machine is just plain horrible (in my experience).
