[PD] gem cpu consumption

hello everyone! I got a problem and would really apreciate any help to solve 
I´m running pd on winXP (sucks, I know) on a Toshiba Satellite a16-sp100 
(celeron 2.4 Ghz-256 ram) with an Intel 82852/82855 gm/gme graphics 
controller that I use for an external monitor.
The problem is that when I drag a gem window to the external monitor the CPU 
meter goes from, say, 7 to 70, when lucky... that doesn´t happen if i drag a 
Windows Media window for example, what makes me think that Gem makes the 
graph controller achieve some ram space to work somehow freely... and the 
fact that this only happens with pd and gem makes me wish there´s a solution 
from pd itself... so I ask for help to the community... thanks in advance
