Well why not leave it idling running top.

If top, if you press "f j enter" it will add a processor column
just in front of the module name so you can see which processor
any task is running on.

You were able to tell us one processor what busy and the other
not, so obviously its not a screen saver issue, or you wouldn't have
any display to look at to see this.

Since you do have a display, just run top.
