File a bug with Ubuntu, to add more evidence that Unity and all the Compiz tweaks they've implemented to make Unity work are a total disaster.

Run in terminal:

ubuntu-bug compiz

Choose "Continue, I was referred here by Support" during the information collection fase.

Make a launchpad account and file the bug.

Would you happen to have a dual monitor setup?

Hello,

yes I have Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 350 @ 2.27GHz

and CPU usage by compiz always about 20-30%

when i switch off my Audacious load is down.

I can't disable compiz because I think that unity use it.

I recommend you try a lighter-weight desktop than Unity in that case. My personal favorite is XFCE.
