    Yes, housekeeping stops once you start using the OS. Some activities can take up to a finish to get to where a endpoint can be set to allow for the OS to remember where to continue when you log out.

    I never leave a system just sitting idle. I always shut it down since housekeeping has become something that can take less than a minute with a properly maintained machine.
    And one more question. Is it fine to turn off windows defrag? Is it slowing down my hdd if you turn it off?

    Yes, you can run it on demand. Click Analyze, let it finish and then click Optimize and let that finish.

    You might wish to check the Task Scheduler and make sure that it isn't running on a scheduled basis.

    1. Click on the Start Menu
    2. Start typing Defrag and you'll see an option come up called Defragment and Optimize Drives. Select that.
    3. Make sure the drive you want to turn off Defrag/Optimize is highlighted and then click on Change Settings.
    4. Uncheck the box that says Run on a schedule.
    5. Click on OK and you're done.

    Or...

    Let it defragment both HDD's once fully and then subsequent optimizations will run much shorter.
