    Are you sure nothing like Mail is running? What about Software Update?



    Well, there are a few things that you can do to check what's going on in the terminal. netstat is the first that comes to mind. Though, I prefer to use BrickHouse set the firewall to block and log ALL incoming and outgoing traffic, start the firewall, and then check the logs to see what ports are being used.
