    You completely missed my point. I merged the two because we don't need N boring threads here. All the nonsens and boring discussion belongs to the boring thread.

    I think you assumed what was boring for you would be boring for others and the OP as well... Doesn't have to be the case.

    Nevermind...

    One would not expect DMA and the likes to be counted here.

    Reason: DMA (Direct Memory Access) is a feature invented with the very intention of releasing the processor when (say) a file is being copied into the memory or in general any IO involving the memory is to happen. IO is typically slow compared to the processor's speed, and if a processor was to synchronize IO (like loading a file to memory, etc) then it would spend most of it's time in idle wait cycles. So, we have the DMAC - the DMA Controller that takes this responsiblity up.

    The Controller (of any IO device) works with the DMAC (DMA Controller) on approval of the CPU (The Processor) that bytes be transferred from the former to the memory via the DMAC. Interrupts and Handshake Signals make for the synchronization.

    Also note that the Taskmanager itself samples data at a set frequency. You don't see real-time information, and a lot of what is shown by default is unnecessary if not meaningless.

    A good replacement is Process Explorer from SysInternals.

    Le sigh. It is supposed to snow here today.

    As we say in Michigan. 6 months of winter and 6 months of bad sledding.

    Cool Re: The Boring Thread

    When I'm waiting outside for somebody who is not coming, I look down at my shadow on the ground, and I try to walk over the shadow of my head. But I wouldn't recommend doing this in the middle of the night when the light comes from three different lampposts.

    I had cereal and coffee for breakfast.

    The cereal was good so was the coffee.

    Why do we lose consciousness when we sleep?
