Vista Won't Idle
About a week ago it looks like Windows hasn't been idling. The search indexer
will only run at full speed, and scheduled tasks that are set to run only
when idle won't run, even though they are set to run in the middle of the
night when I haven't touched the computer for hours. Any items that have been
received into Outlook don't get indexed and the list of items to be indexed
keeps getting bigger. The only significant change to my system is that I
started using a BlueTooth mouse the day the problems started. I've since
turned off the mouse, and unistalled it but the problem persists. As well the
SearchFilterHost.exe process is constantly occupying atleast 50% of my CPU
usage. Any suggestions?

Thanks,


Eric Sambell

Re: Vista Won't Idle

I don't use Windows Search. Aside from the problems you are having,
even when
it "works right" it preoccupies my HD indexing stuff whenever it feels
like it. I use
locate32 freeware and run the indexing manually. Also I turned off as
many scheduled tasks and services as I can find that want to hog the HD.

You might also look at network shadowing. A lot of the time Vista
wants to cache copies of remote files in case you want to work on them
"offline" which may make sense for a work computer on a big Lan but for
my 2 machine network, if I'm "offline" I just boot up the other
machine!!
