That depends on what you use and what you might maybe use in the future... –  JanC Nov 4 '10 at 20:43
    
I guess with some of these its more obvious what I loose if I turn them off. I imagine if I turn off "Bluetooth manager" I will lose Bluetooth, I am ok with that. What do I lose if I turn off "GSettings Data Conversion"? –  Alex Black Nov 4 '10 at 20:45
    
I just think these all doesnt need to be loaded on the startup, we could just load them a bit later when the cpu is more free. –  Aquarius Power Dec 24 '14 at 16:47

  • Bluetooth manager: bluetooth won't work until you re-enable it and re-login
  • disk notifications: don't disable it, it will warn you if your disk is going to die soon!
  • login sound: safe to disable
  • GSettings data conversion: I would leave this turned on, as it might cause problems in the future otherwise
  • power manager: you better keep this running
  • remote desktop: might be okay if you don't use it
  • Ubuntu One: again, if you don't use it...
  • User folder update: might be useful to keep it in case of changes in the future
  • visual assistance: if you are 100% sure nobody will ever need accessibility tools on this system...

I'd leave GSettings Data Conversion, Disk Notifications and Power Manager alone.

Please imagine a sidenote about "how this most likely won't effect the overall performance" here. Thank you.
