This link suggests you can for just .wav files.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 isn't working with one of my crontab commands… any ideas?
Just to make sure: does sudo bash -c "/home/backup/backupscript.sh" work?

comment Why does whoopsie increasingly take more CPU?
yes, adding cpulimit -e whoopsie -l 3 & to /etc/rc.local (before the exit statement) resolves my problem.

Thank you for your helpful comments. I appreciate them. My error in understanding was to add the cpulimit at startup (of the user login). Here I cannot use sudo (well unless I visudo cpulimit, which I do not like doing). Maybe I should add the cpulimit to some boot script.

@Ed Yes, I see the tandem combination with NetworkManager as well, also I believe deja-dup-monito to be involved. One thing which strikes me with this bug #1056393: when i also run the torrent program transmission, i can strongly see the mentioned tandem increasing cpu load. I guess transmission (during download) involves the NetworkManager and somehow triggers the bug. I will have a look to see if i can add my experience to the bug report.

I've tried out your idea of using cpulimit. It works fine on processes I own, but it does not seem to work on processes owned by root (like whoopsie is).
