Default Severe system slow down with NVIDIA driver (openSUSE 11.2, Quadro FX 2700M)

Hi all,

I have a Dell M6400 laptop with a Quadro FX 2700M running openSUSE 11.2 with KDE 4.4.4.

When my system starts up, everything works fine and performance is good. However, after a while I experience severe slowdown and can see in top that the Xorg and kwin processes are consuming ~20% CPU each.

If I reinstall the NVIDIA driver, the problem clears up for a while but soon returns without any system changes being made. I have seen this with driver versions 195,36.15, 256.44 and 256.35 (current). It seems to be worse if I configure twinview for my two LCD monitors rather than running with just the notebook display.

The output of is attached. What can I tweak/change/upgrade to cure this please?

Many thanks!
