    "kworker" is a placeholder process for kernel worker threads, which perform most of the actual processing for the kernel, especially in cases where there are interrupts, timers, I/O, etc. These typically correspond to the vast majority of any allocated "system" time to running processes. It is not something that can be safely removed from the system in any way, and is completely unrelated to nepomuk or KDE (except in that these programs may make system calls, which may require the kernel to do something).

    In plain Engrish, if it is using lots of battery, it means something is working in the background, such as apps syncing or automatically downloading something (such as ads, updates) ... etc.
    So MattyP how do you get all the ladies??

    'MattyP' yeah, the chicks love it when you give em an upgrade...

    Thanks MattyP. I installed watch dog and cpu spy to see if I was getting hammered on batt usage and that is one of the things that will give me a low level alert when my phone has been idle.

    When my phone is at rest, cpu spy indicates that it is sleeping so that is encouraging...

    Thanks,
    Geoff
