whats the relationship or any interactions between file managing and DOWNLOADMANAGER while being offline (no downloads going on)? dose the process trigger the media scanning or vise versa? ?
my phones both rooted:Xperia mini GB and Xperia go JB
my cpu monitoring app is usage-timeline
excuse my bad English

That process is related with the download manager service. Freezing the download manager service will do the trick but you can't download anything from the play store afterwards..
AFAIK that bug is fixed in antis 4.3..

How do you monitor your cpu's timeline?
look ,I recently have(had!) issue with AudioEffectService that similarly was used to keep on top of cpu consuming processes and even being forceStop-proof! then i finally got to delete it permanently !
As i tested on walkman player no change in sound quallity and but:
Whats the functionality of that?and what if i wont reinstall it back?

also i use wakelock detector to monitor the wake locks and cpu consumption..
also i have no clue about the audio effect service..
maybe it's something like dsp manager or some sort of equaliser or something.. [/QUOTE]

these two processes are DownloadManager and AudioEffectsService
there was some more one that were used to draw less cpu and myself uninstalled them eg: DrmDialogues and EcoModController...

here is two screenshots (by Wakelock-detector & usage-timeline )
