Controlling Services at Boot with Administrative Tools

You can configure what services run at startup from the Dash with a search for Startup Applications (shown in Figure 14.1). Here Ubuntu lists all the services that you can have automatically start at boot time. They are usually all enabled by default, but you can uncheck the ones you don’t want and click OK. It is not recommended that you disable services randomly “to make things go faster.” Some services might be vital for the continuing operation of your computer, such as the graphical login manager and the system communication bus.
