Hi William,
   Sleeping processes are the result of persisitant connections and
should not slow down your server.  As to why you server is "so slow"
you will have to provide specific examples of what is slow.  We reach
speeds of 600 queries per second on slower hardware.  Also please
indicated languages used for examples and versions of FreeBSD, MySQL
and PHP (if you use PHP).

Also there are many tunable parameters
( I recommend Paul
Dubois Book on MySQL

Best of Luck,
