I have no answer, but it wouldn't be strange not to backup when no user changes its files.

comment Does Time Machine run backups even when no account is logged on?
@smokris - Launch Time Machine after a period with no user logged on, then check the dates of the last backups. This will give a definitive answer, be it yes or no.

comment Export from IMovie is very blurry
I wouldn't rule out iMovie so fast. If the preview takes place within iMovie, it is possible that what is displayed is the video before iMovie export.

comment Mac external drive, file rights
If you want to control permissions, you should format your drive to HFS+. I bet that the Lacie setup program formatted it to FAT32 for best compatibility.

comment How do a create an iPhoto Smart Album of ANY of the names X, Y or Z but only for the year 2013
Instead of adding a keyword, you can keep the first smart album (name it Family) and create the second one with 'belongs to Family album' AND 'date between 1/1/13 and 12/31/13'

comment How to truly disable Ethernet and Firewire?
Security people may want to check your laptop inside a private room while you wait outside. They may take it apart, clone the disk, then reassemble it and give it back to you as if nothing happened. This procedure may not occur at the airport but discreetly in your hotel room when you are busy with some social event.
