Probably it's because there is something in the print queue (try the command
"lpq"  to see what's in the queue) If you see something try "lprm -" as root
to get rid of all jobs in the queue.

Well, you are running X with a clock, a Windows Manager (fvwm), a couple of
X terms, a PPP connection, etc. It's normal to have this number of
processes, unless you're talking about something else.
