> why is the CPU only idle for one usec? I thought it would be idle for the 10usecs that shortsleep is sleeping
Asked and answered (somewhere) previously. The process's sleep time occurs simultaneously with the transition time (RUNNING->SLEEP), so by the tiem the transition has occured, the request to sleep for 10usecs has been satisfied.
