If you logout completely it stops all programs and services etc. running on that user. However if you use fast user switching you can go back to the logon screen but still have another user logged on (and running programs).

In general, logging off kills off any programs that happen to be running. Some services, however, continue to run; I don't recall which services, but I know that they're there!

KoanYorel is likely to know the answer as related to F@H. Try posting it in the F@H thread.
