Try first...

Simplify[ArcCos[Cos[x]] - x, 0 <= x <= 1]

Or use a larger plot range.

Plot[ArcCos[Cos[x]] - x, {x, 0, 1},
    PlotRange -> {-1, 1},
    Frame -> True];

My Mathematica 5.0 FrontEnd on Mandrake Linux hangs with

Plot[ArcCos[Cos[x]] - x, {x, 0, 1}]

I suspect the problem is that the argument is near $MachineEpsilon
