Speed up by disabling Screen Sharing
Authored by: MacUser06 on Mar 26, '11 03:12:42AM


I just want add that screen sharing was turned off in the preference pane.

I think those processes are running whether you have screen sharing enabled or not.

I have 8 gigs of memory. I give 4 of them to parallells. but still If just leave parallells open, or work for a long time, (at least with parallells 5), then eventually things would bog down.)

I think disabling the three daemons really does some difference, when it comes to speed.

The other trick for getting more juice while running parallels with windows windows 7, is to use the "good GPU" if you got one. Then I think the aero technology of windows 7 kicks in.

The plists are indeed loaded into launchd, regardless whether Screen Sharing is enable or not. However, the actual daemons are only running if Screen Sharing is enabled.

If Remote Management is enabled, the same processes might be running, as Screen Sharing is a subset of Remote Management. In my case, with Remote Management active, was in my process list, and once I disabled Remote Management, it no longer was.
