My experience is that it can take a long time (may be as much as two minutes ) to load from the first save file when you restart Prime95, during which time the CPU load varies a lot, maybe between 10%-30% (YMMV, though), but when it finishes loading and says "Resuming primality test..." (or whatever), the CPU goes to 100% as expected.

Writing the save files, although taking longer than on a local hard drive, is much quicker - a second or two?
