I never run haldaemon and my system works fine. You need it if you
want to mount a USB device (or other hotplugable device). When I need
it, I start it, let it work and then stop it again. My computer is
slow (PIII) so I need all the cycles for myself.
Here's all the daemons I run (this is a desktop, not a server).
messagebus 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
network 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
sshd 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
