I had a similar issue on my MacBook Air (although not on the MacBook Pro) and I found changing Safari into 32-Bit mode resolved the issue. If you go into the Applications folder, right click on Safari (Get Info pane) and check the box for 32-bit mode. Restart and give it a go.
I've been using the MacBook Air this way for about 3 weeks and have not had the Flash Player issue rear it's ugly head again. In addition, I've noticed no loss in functionality.
There's a topic over on macrumors.com regarding the new 27" iMac and the same issue. Some of what the users are talking about over there might be helpful.
I get 99% with safari runs in 32 bits mode. http://yfrog.com/10capturadepantalla200911op
I test with other Imac 20" late 2007 too and get the same performance issue, so I think it's Snow Leopard and Flash Player. I hope Apple fix in OSX 10.6.2
Anyway, thanks for your help.
My problems started about 1 month ago. Since then I updated only Safari to 4.0.4 and Java for 10.5 to update 6.
My results with 3 open safari windows:
CPU usage 120 - 130%
extreme hot case
1,5 - 2 hours to empty the battery.
After installing click2flash safari is again usable, but it is not the ultimate solution.
