Even after setting Little Snitch to deny AAM Updates Notifier, it's still chewing up the processor with incessant reading or writing.  Some time ago, for some reason this Mac Pro (2010) suddenly stopped going to sleep through the normal method, so I've had to devolve to pressing the power button to put it to sleep.

I try not to put the Mac to sleep in the middle of a read/write, though it's probably not a problem.  I just don't like AAM UN!  #$@#!


Do I write a shell script?  Can I use Python?  Using Python I could figure out a script easier.  What I did just now is opened Activity Monitor and killed the process. Would I write a script to do that, or is there a more elegant way?  (I'm sure there must be!)


Thanks for any help, I'm out of my depth here (obviously),


Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
