I want to move all the layers (objects) down a bit - but all at the same time

Assuming you're using CS3, CS4 or CS5 you should consider grouping your layers.

Just select all of the layers you want to group, and follow the above. It will throw all of them in a group you can expand or collapse. You can toggle the visibility and if you want to move the entire group, just select the folder as the active layer (which is really all of the layers contained within.) Everything in it will move in lockstep.
