Can I schedule dropbox, drive, box etc to NOT all hog computer time?

For various reason I use several cloud storage services - dropbox, drive, copy, box, etc etc. All are great, all offer sync'ing of my PC (Windows 7) files and directories. I (like many people), sync different folders to different cloud services. BUT, I really don't need them ALL to happen INSTANTLY or SIMULTANEOUSLY. I fear that my PC is grinding to a halt because of these sync'ing services all scanning for file changes at the same time. It can't be good for performance. So ... is there a way to schedule each cloud service to run only at certain times? Or maybe to have one of them always running and others to pop in to have a quick look, and then disappear again for a couple of hours and not hog resources? Ideally I (we) want a "cloud service manager" that would allow users to control many different services and to allocate time slots, resources and priorities, etc.. Does such a thing exist? Thanks in advance.
