    what's the normal CPU usage of a XOrg session?
    I think mine is a little bit high, so I want to compare

    Xorg sits at a pretty constant 50 - 60% on my system. I think due to intel video driver

    The application xrestop may also help identifying issues.

    Mine is idle most of the time but when there is some action like plasmoid in work it jumps to values between 5 and 8 for some seconds.

    apparently it is a known issue with older intel graphics (I'm using 915G) since the i810 drivers were removed from Opensuse 11.1
