comment Why a sudden increase in CPU when battery low?
@alexkent - definitely part of Spotlight, and are the main culprits. However, this is a consistent and repeatable problem, not coincidence - see edits above.

comment How can I toggle internet sharing from the command line?
Yep, duplicate, which I'd missed. Interesting that the tags between this post and the other are totally different.

Reassuring, thanks - and had just come across another reference to sensitive data insecurity with dumps! Disabled it is.

comment Is it possible to trigger a script when drive is ejected from the Finder?
There is a hack to let you do something like this - renaming umount and creating a new umount script that removes dotfiles and then calling the old umount. Will give this a try anyway.

comment How to not allow other people to access your mac?
+1 - To this I'd add: make sure SSH access is turned off - in the 'sharing' tab, ensure 'remote login' is not selected. For that matter, you can turn off all the sharing options there to make SURE no-one has access.

Clarified timing of script because 'when' is interpreted as 'after' by some.

It would run BEFORE the drive ejects ... when the Finder starts the process of unmounting it. Presumably there is a way of running a script before umount runs.
