Information about idle process

The idle process isn't really a process, but a value calculated by the process manager, indicating how much process memory is still available. This value is strongly dependent on the CPU loads or PC use. As a rule, if the loads are low, this value should be between 85% and 100%, whereby 100% is rarely reached. If the idle process values are outside these values, the system should be searched for permanently active applications and a defragmentation should be conducted.
