I think it may be related to "disk" activity.
Applications that have been used recently seems to work a lot faster
than other applications.
I presume that this is caused by those apps having there disk data in the 
IO cache, after a while other services might have used the disk effectively 
flushing the relative small/tiny amount of free mem used for caching.
