It sounds like yum-updater is running in the background. Which FC & KDE are you running?

You can find out what is running by either going to the the KDE menu and System > Monitor > KSysGuard. Then select the Process Table tab. This will show you what is running, and by clicking on the button at the top of the user% or system% column you can sort by amount of resources.
