Text tool / CPU (over)use

    I am using PS6.0 on a Win2k machine with an Athlon 1.4Ghz and 1.5GB RAM.

    When I have text selected for editing, the CPU usage of Photoshop goes
    to 100% and stays there. This seems unreasonable considering the fairly
    powerful CPU. Worse, my system tends to lock up (overheat) when the
    usage is maxed out for more than a few minutes, so it's almost
    impossible for to do any text formatting etc.

    Any suggestions?

    Increase the cooling on the CPU, AMDs are notorious for
    running rather warm. If your system's really overheating
    addressed that FIRST before you lose it. Then worry
    about the text tool.
