Hi,

System Idle Process is actually something you don't want to end. The higher the number the better off you are. I'm going to see if I can find you a 'good' defintion of what it is. I'll post back with it if/when I find one. Also, just thought I would add that you can't end it, the task manager won't allow it. :tazz:

Here maybe this will explain it a little better.

Its not really a process, it's just your system reporting that it's more or less idle, i.e nothing is happening. The percentage taken up by System Idle Process will always be "100 % - what's used by active programs/processes", and therefore not a value for what's happening. Actually it's just the opposite.
