cron, ntp, network, postfix, cups, rpcbind, nfs, smb, bluetoothd, sshd.
in order of what i believe to be importance - cron will generate regular 
cpu spikes when dealing with cronjobs, ntp time gaps can confuse ffado, 
networkmanager can also misbehave. the rest i haven't had particular 
problems with, but i thought why keep them around...
