Suggestions included :-

(I went for this one).

Try this one that should be able to run unmodified on anything with a
Bourne-like shell:

while : ; do : ; done

Other suggestions and relevant websites :-

gzipping a large file and loop it

while true; do
wc -c /dev/mem  &
wc -c /dev/mem  &
wc -c /dev/mem  &
wc -c /dev/mem  &
sleep 10 &

while true
      ls -al

while true
ksh -c "sleep 1" &

while [ x = x ] ; do x=1; done

Thanks again all
Best wishes
