    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    It looks like Hardware drivers option haven't installed correct driver. Re-install Driver using envy. Its available in Ubuntu Sources.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install envyng-gtk
    Either use its Graphical Interface or execute envyng command in Terminal. Remove existing driver and re-install again.

    Sorry Casper, I was using Vista for not overload the CPU, but I start Mint again, Xorg is using 10 - 15 % of CPU, even if firefox open. It is the correct value?
    Thanks.

    Hi Casper,
    I still have problem with Xorg. I installed envyng and removed the drive. I installed recommended drive ( old version ), but the problem persist.
    Do you have any more idea?
    Thanks.

    I had similar problem with Linux mint 7. I usually like to stay one release behind on what ever distro I am using in order to avoid immediate release bugs.

    anyways.

    When you go to Start (menu) > Administration > Hardware Drives.

    It recommends that you use NVIDIA drive (version 180) [Recommended]
    So that is what I did. So I noticed that my cpu never droped below 50% in Idle.

    I went back and changed the driver to NVIDIA driver (version 173).

    since then my idle CPU is around 3 to 5 %.
