pulse audio proccess/gnome system monitor taskbar applet taking too much cpu resource

i have a 1 day old install of F11 and have always preferred the system monitor applet sitting in a taskbar giving me a feel of the cpu load, ram, swap and system load so i don't have too much running at once and crash or freeze. ive noticed that its been higher than it should be when i have nothing running. when i open the full system monitor window the system monitor applet runs at 17-35% which i think is a bit much.

another problem is the pulse audio process is never below 30%, right now its at 35% and its sleeping.
is there any way i can reduce the footprint of these processes, or if need be switch to another system monitor with a lower footprint?

i have a 1100 mhz amd athalon over clocked to 1500 mhz and havent had this problem with f10 or the install of ubuntu 9 which i just abandoned for the new fedora.

any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

If you like a permanent monitor on your desktop, install conky or gkrellm.
For accurate info in a terminal run top.

I don't use the gnome applet, but there is info about it in this thread:
