    CPU and PROCESS managment

    Hi guys ! ; I'm totally aware of what's CPU and what's process ; but to solve problems more conveniently ; may I get any analogy that visualize CPU and Process management ? I mean for example once CPU execute a process , doesn't matter if process is idle or not idle, CPU is still executing it .. it sounds for me like something magically ; because if process is idle how actually CPU execute it ?i.e execute means that CPU operates the process ..but process in this case is idle so how CPU is operates something is idle?! I deeply believe I can overcome this come if there's any analog to visualize the CPU and its manipulations on PROCESS.

    thanks in advance

    You = CPU
    Process = Phone call to customer service
    Idle = "Your call is important to us"

    At what point do you get fed up waiting and start to do something else while you're listening for an actual operator?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    what do you mean by the statement of idle? didn't understand the analogy to "your call is important to us" .. idle should be something not important ..

    You are sitting there on hold, doing nothing, waiting to speak with someone on the other end.

    Eventually you put the phone on speaker, and try to do some work while you are waiting patiently on hold! (A concurrent process)
