You should a) find out what the process lister is in Ubuntu (=== ps in FC)

b)  run top in a window and see what is running when you least expect it....
c)  kill absolutely everything you do not actually *need* to hase running.

d)  strongly consider changing your mythbox to something like ratpoison 
instead of kde...
