    Any problem(s) putting these programs to sleep?


    My Avast Internet Security program is suggesting that the following programs (see image below) are slowing down my computer. AIS wants to put them to sleep, but I have no idea whether or not doing this will cause problems???

    Not sure about the first 4 but, the Mozilla Maintenance Service, you can uninstall it completely and check for updates yourself.

    Intel Rapid Storage is your Firmware. do not disable that.
    Intel Security Assist, that to help protect your hard drive from being hacked.
    Not sure about the other two Intel.

    Yeah, I figured I shouldn't disable any of these

    On what basis?

    If you were to stare at the taskmanager with cpu usage sorted, the first four executables would not even move from their positions, for hours and hours (maybe days or months). IOW, they are already happily asleep, dormant, waiting for triggers that are unlikely to come.
