Role of Various Services

Can someone explain what the various Act services are responsible for and/or what effects will occur when stopping them? Specifically I need to know what will happen if I stop ActService - will there be a disruption of functionality for users of the database beyond universal search?

The Act! Scheduler and ActSmartTasks services seem pretty self-explanatory but I'd like to know if there are any unexpected side effects of disabling them.

Do any of the users synchronize with the database on the server? That's the service that allows synchronization with the database without having ACT! open on the database server
