There are a couple of utilities. If you are running Gnome a your
desktop, take a look at "gnome-system-monitor". I do not use KDE, but
there used to be a program called kpm. Otherwise, you can try "top"
from a text console.

38-40% on an idle system is certainly high. But perhaps there are some
cron.daily scripts running in the background. Also, yum-updatesd likes
to do things in the background. But, the above mentioned utilities
should allow you to narrow down the names of the processes that are
utilizing your CPU....
