I have a laptop. I use it for web+email a lot, and then some days for web development. Using it for the latter, I need apache2 and mysql server running, but normally I do not.
I'd like a normal boot to NOT start apache and mysql, to conserve power, reduce boot times etc. but then to be able to start these services when needed.
In the olden days I might have used runlevels for this, but that's a bit old skool now, as I understand. What's the best way to achieve this in Precise?
