Cue up applicable car analogy....

I ask Sergey this question:  When you turn on your car and let it while 
in either a parking gear or in neutral, your car is considered 
"idling".  But does the car still not use oxygen and gasoline, and 
produce heat and waste products all the while idling?  That is how you 
can think of a complex system such as FreeSWITCH.  It is a machine with 
a lot of parts, and idling means that it is in a "ready" state, but does 
not mean that it is "turned off".
