If it's not in there, there's something very wrong with your system...

You need to make sure it's there. You can sort the tasks by name by clicking on the "Image Name" heading.

You ever see the anti-tobacco ads with the sign "WUDDAFUXUP"? Thats what happened...

The system idle process manages your processing cycles that aren't being used for actual work. Without it your OS wouldn't know when the processor was being used or not since it would have unscheduled cycles... that is a very very bad thing.
