    Does anyone know what these processes are?

    Google Updater I can understand, and ATSServer, but are the others part of the OS?

    Thanks in advance.

    All are part of the OS apart from aped and Google Updater. aped is the daemon for APE from unsanity - you'll have installed an application that depends on it. (For what it's worth, I tend to recommend steering clear of APE - it's known for causing stability problems).

    Thanks for the fast reply. I'm gonna uninstall APE for Leopard, judging from the forums lots of people have had issues. Iwon't need Shapeshifter anyway, I only had it installed because it was part of the Macheist bundle.
