comment Unexpected “waiting for localhost”?
What type of computer are you using? What kind of plugins have you installed? Some plugins like google-talk adds helper programs which may be listing on a port on localhost -- so check what ports are activly beeing listen on and post to this question what programs they are.

comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
While this answer probably suffice for most hobbyist, then it is bad advice for real servers -- the answer depends on how the application is written, because running out of swap space will cause the out-of-memory killer to kick in and terminate a process by random (yes you read that right; "random")

+1 for actually refering to kernel configuration parameters -- The key is in the part of the question If I have no swap, I get an 'out of memory' error -- which is false -- the truth is that when you run out of swap space the out-of-memory-killer will kick in and kill a random process to free up space -- so the amount of swap space needed depends on how your application is written.

comment Computer is slow to power up - how to fix?
I would suggest to disable any devices in the BIOS which you are not actually using, and see if that helps.
