When my mind is idling I mostly just ruminate on some thing that I "need" to do and come up with a few ways to do it, and then move on to the next problem, jump back to the first, and on. A lot of imagined conversations and mentally arranging things I need to do.
When I'm actually confronted with a conversation or book or something my brain kicks it up into the next gear. When I see an excessively long math problem or something I don't want to think about it shuts off.
It's not the most efficient machine, but it does okay.
