I noticed I had this problem when I had a large preview running (large as in physical size - I had my preview nearly taking up all of my monitor). When I reduced the picture to I think it was about 900x900 pixels and fit the preview to that, it only uses about 50%. Run the sequence with no preview and it hardly uses anything.

Maybe that's it?????

Thanks ingrid, that was the problem, doesn't matter how much you read and how careful you are you can still make the basic of mistakes

Oh I don't think you made a mistake (man, I've made worse ;) ). It took me a little bit to work out what the problem was - I actually thought I'd stuffed something in the sequence at first and nearly had a big girlie cry!
