OT: to be "nice", or not...

I launch a task at normal priority (nice-ness 0)
When this task has finished I wish to be paged...
In other words;
Question: Can I have one task be postponed while another one
is still executing?
Is this possible?
e.g. a command sequence that might take a long time:
$ echo >list.md5 ; find -type f | xargs md5sum -b >>list.md5
$ nice -n 19 cat TaskDone.wav >/dev/dsp
*The point* is beeing able to launch the time/cpu-consuming task and then
"append" the paging later.
The obvious is to concatenate "cat ..." with the line above it
- but this is NOT the answer I'm asking for.
