I am not sure why but I just noticed that when any program except the finder is open there are two arrows in the top left corner right next to the apple. Does anyone know why these are there and what function they serve? Thanks...

the arrows indicate network activity between your machine and your local network or the internet.

To be more specific it is any Appleshare/AppleTalk network activity. So if you are on AFP network or have filesharing and Appletalk on you will see this when there is AFP activity on your machine. This includes FileSharing over IP and thus accessing your iDisk.

AFP = Apple FileSharing Protocol

it's probably appleshare mounting your idisk on the desktop. it doesn't need either file sharing or appletalk to be active to work its magic.

iDisk is AFP over TCP/IP.
