    Cheers for the tip mint waxed, im sure thatll be helpful to the next person who stumbles accross this thread

    Mine was on 5% though so all good.

    Thanks again dalchina, i've gone through and re-enabled all the apps and processes I need, and everything is still fine. Maybe in the future i'll go back and find out which one exactly was causing the problem (if i do i'll report back here for sure). But for now it's all good!
    I've read your post again and my reply did not address your actual problem. I guess I had some kind of brain fog at the time. My apologizes for sending you on a wild goose chase. Glad your idle was at the 5% default.

    No problem

    It was still a good suggestion!
