I am running the Win.exe client of BitCoin on a 6-processor Thuban w/ 8 GB of RAM and Win7 Home Premium.
I have it set to use multiple processors.

While running nothing else (other than a web browser and minimal background) my CPU load is very minimal.

Is there something I am doing wrong, or is this just the way it is?

For example, currently I have 8 connections, have a couple hundred K blocks, and my CPU load looks like this:http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/ee353/zeevious/6core_bitcoin_load.png?t=1305827675

If you aren't mining, you aren't using the CPUs! And CPU mining, should you start doing it, is less than profitable.

Thanks.  Its working now, and all my CPUs are at 100%.  I guess it had to wait until it had enough blocks to start hashing.

Aah, I see what you were asking now. Yeah, that makes sense.
