If you post a screen capture of processes in Task manager we could see the CPU usage allocations of each running program and it would be very clear which one(s) are causing 60% CPU usage at idol.
It could be something surprisingly simple. I once ran across a computer with 97% CPU usage at idol and Task Manager showed that it was a Java program and using Auto Runs it was easy to locate the program and prevent it from starting again.
