GPU usage Issue on Media Temple’s Grid-Server

I tried Media Temple(mt) Grid-Service(gs) hosting service for about 20 days and found that it’s not the perfect hosting solution for my sites as wordpress wp-cron.php takes most of my GPU’s. Media Temple’s GRID hosting plan uses GPU measurement (which stands for Grid Performance Unit). According to mediatemple, GPU is a measurement that derives from CPU time required by every single hit/request made to your (gs) Grid-Service. Each hosting plan has allotted 1000 GPU’s per month (Approx 1.38 GPU’s per hour).
