Default (FC6 + 6400 go + 9626 + compviz == 100% CPU) - ACPI == Good

All I can say is WTF?

In the post titled "FC6 + 6400 go + 9626 + compviz == 100% CPU" I was having problems with 100% CPU usage on simple tasks like loading a web page.

I went to the Fedora forums and noticed some posts about problems with ACPI on "some" laptops.

I booted with "acpi=off" and viola no more problems. Glxgears is showing ~2000 fps vs. the 230 I was getting, and my CPU usage is back where it should be.

Can someone more informed than me tell me why this worked?

The BIOS in your system has an ACPI bug.
