Exclamation WinUAE CPU usage at 100% argh

I was using WinUAE before and I switched back to windows using Alt+Tab, and when I do Ctrl+Alt+Del to check my system resources it says that WinUAE is using 99% of what I have available, slowing everything down. Surely this isn't supposed to happen?
I have an XP Atholon 2400 and 256megs of Mem. And am using windows 2000. I'm quite worried that WinUAE is gonna eat my CPU now
And yes iv'e tried rebooting. I think its always done this iv'e just never noticed before. It means I can't run WinUAE in a window and do other stuff. rahh

Send a message via ICQ to andreas Send a message via AIM to andreas
Nonetheless, if it happens again, try to experiment with the CPU idle switch (in CPU settings, where else )

100% CPU use in fastest possible/JIT-mode is feature.. Unfortunately there is no other way to lower CPU usage than to enable (not so perfect) hacks like CPU-idle-checkbox.
