Hi all,

I have a mid 2007 24" iMac running 10.6.3.

I've noticed recently that after a while the machine runs slow, and checking the activity monitor the blued process (Bluetooth) is using a considerable percentage of CPU. The only bluetooth device I have installed is a Targus mouse.

Killing the process (it automatically respawns) occasionally fixes it, but not always. A restart will fix it.

A google search did find this post Adventures in the Clouds: blued process is killing my CPU (http://cpenniman.blogspot.com/2010/02/blued-process-is-killing-my-cpu.html) - I followed the instructions but it didn't seem to help. I did notice that upon restart all my bluetooth devices were still in the preferences so I guess I didn't remove all the plists...

I have removed all bluetooth devices and I'm using a wired mouse (how quaint) and I'll let you know how I go, but has anyone had any similar occurences?

I realise its a bit more 'techie' than many questions asked here but I thought I'd ask local first.
