I'm not sure about other daemons that get started automatically by
Gnome, but in the case of esd, you have the choice to tell it to kill
itself after N seconds of not being used. My esd config file is like:

$> cat /etc/esound/esd.conf
spawn_options=-terminate -nobeeps -as 3

And then I have a mandatory key to not allow users to turn on the Sound
Server Startup by themselves. I never see any problems with sound and
the esd daemon auto-kills itself after 3 seconds ;-).

Ditto. Never would dare to use KDE. I have since removed all kde related
stuff from my system except for a few libraries here and there. ;-)

Hope this helps...
