Do you have SizzlingKeys?

Open terminal. Run "top". Open another terminal window. "kill" both SizzlingKeys and iTunesHelper ID #s.

Tunrs out that WAS the problem! But, instead of going through Terminal I just went into system prefs and turned it off! Thanks!

Haha, I just thought it might be iTunesHelper, so I killed 2 birds with 1 Terminal. Glad to know it's that simple, though.
