If you are running on IIS Express, iisexpress.exe is what you are looking for. w3wp is whn you run the full IIS

Double check that your settings in the "Attach to Process" dialog are configured appropriately, and check that your Visual Studio instance has enough privellages - if running on Windows, run Visual Studio as Administrator. 

.. but this isn't specifically related to Optimizely CMS, so you should search Google/StackOverflow for a better answer, it's a very common question.
