    I installed OpenSSH from installer the other day so that I could access files and transfer to and from my mac. I use this feature only now and then but my question was, does having this program installed take any life away from my battery life?
    I was wondering if maybe the program in the background was running and doing anything that would cause excess processes to take place on my iPhone even when i am not SSH ing into it.

    Questions or comments are welcome

    Thanks,
    Alex

    yes, 'bossprefs' will help you there

    or the old application 'services'
