What service or job is causing this to happen? If I run the System Monitor I see that some processes for newly installed applications default to Very High.

Here is an example, it includes some programs that I understand might be set to very high, but also includes a program I never use "soffice" which is Open Office. It's set to "Very High" but I never use it and I certainly never set it to be high priority.

  • Services such as pulseaudio do need higher priority than others, likely this is hard-coded into them. What exactly is the issue you're having ? – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Dec 4 '16 at 2:17
  • I updated my post with some examples and a screenshot. – Kristopher Ives Dec 4 '16 at 4:18
  • hmm, that is abnormal. Look into /etc/security/limits.conf file, see if priority is set to very high for your user there. – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Dec 4 '16 at 4:46
  • There's definitely an issue with his priority. – George Udosen Dec 4 '16 at 5:15
