This is weird:
yellow only 12% idle
CPU load = 0.00, green Swap Space 1.9GB (96.9%) free
green logged on users = 0
top - 13:53:59 up 88 days, 20:43, 0 users, load average: 0.00, 0.04, 0.00
Tasks: 76 total, 1 running, 75 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.0% us, 0.0% sy, 0.0% ni, 100.0% id, 0.0% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 1035940k total, 814956k used, 220984k free, 426028k buffers
Swap: 2104496k total, 64816k used, 2039680k free, 147228k cached
BigSister says: 12% idle, top says 100% idle.
