Check with "top" which applications eat your CPU time. Also check on the load
average (shown in "top").

It could be a simple thing like a browser with a java applet eating all your
CPU time. A process that is causing heavy disk I/O could also be the cause.

Maybe there's a cron job running (like updatedb).
