As has been discussed in many places in the forums, "Adobe Resource Syncronizer" under MacOS 10.6 (and other versions) will frequently consume 80% or more of available CPU cycles doing nothing useful at all. This has been a problem reported here for more than a year and yet it persists. The result is that my MacBook CPU fan starts running constantly and battery life is sucked dry.
Unfortunately, my wife isn't techie enough to know how to pull up the process list and kill the odous piece of software fecal matter, and I'm not always around in time to help. Today again, her MacBook Air battery lasted less than 2 hours when it normally goes for 5 or more. Yes, that's still better than my Dell's battery, but it still means lost productivity and an unhappy family. And Adobe software has been the only example of such misbehavior.
Please fix this steaming pile of bits and provide an update utility that behaves itself.
Until there is a fix, I'm uninstalling all Adobe software from the machine and sticking with alternative PDF viewers such as the built-in Preview.
