If you've turned off Vista's scheduled defrag, then Vista isn't
defragging -- full stop. As a "professional user", I'm sure you've already
confirmed this for yourself, but Vista runs many maintenance tasks in the
background -- indexing, prioritizing the boot- load process, tuning the
memeory utilization, etc. Over time, as the system is stabilized, much of
this activity dies down. Meanwhile, just forget about it and get on with
your work.
