Question Copying files to USB Flash Drive

If you use Ubuntu - when you copy files to USB Flash Drive, is your CPU 100% loaded? On Arch it is.

I've just copied 150 files totaling about 800MB, average cpu load was about 30%.
This test was done on a Toshiba laptop with an AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58 processor capable of 1.9 GHz but which had automatically had cut back to 800MHz for reduced power.
The memory stick and laptop are both USB 2.0
