Speed up by disabling Screen Sharing
Authored by: da2357 on Mar 25, '11 08:33:19AM
The three plists referenced are all system daemons that launch the following:

/System/Library/CoreServices/RFBEventHelper.bundle/Contents/MacOS/RFBEventHelperd /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/AppleVNCServer.bundle/Contents/Support/RFBRegisterMDNS /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/AppleVNCServer.bundle/Contents/Support/RFBRegisterMDNS

Since the three items are system daemons, you need to be root in order for 'launchctl list' to list them. One my Mac, at this moment, if I run:
[ ~ ]$ ps -ax | grep
  958 ttys000    0:00.00 grep
[ ~ ]$ ps -ax | grep
  960 ttys000    0:00.00 grep
[ ~ ]$ ps -ax | grep
  962 ttys000    0:00.00 grep
I get the PIDs of these three processes. I suppose one could write a simple bash script that would find the PID of these three processes on-demand and then kill them.

Those are the PIDs of the grep statement, not the processes you're looking for. You should look at the tip and discussion on Ignoring grep self matching found here
