Please refer to the documentation of top and ps. 'D' as status means
non-interruptible. This is used when opening a file for writing, mounting
or umounting filesystems etc. You can't interrupt or terminate a program
in such a state.
'D' mainly occurs if you run into severe disk problems - or removed
a disk without telling the system. In case of severe disk problems
a reboot combined with a filesystem check would be a good idea.
If you come from outside of Finland, you live in wrong country.
