Yes.. normal when downloading something such as an update or game or pre-load.
You can stop the game updates and downloading by clicking on the game and selecting it from the list of options.

As for Steam updates... I don't know if you can stop those from occurring.

I have Steam set to not start when Windows starts for this reason. Then I only turn on Steam when I need it.

Something is wrong with this, downloading the demo uses 59% of my CPU.

I'm not a fan of steam but thought i would just put up with it for L4D, so i pre-ordered, stuck steam back on my HDD but it's sucking the life from my computer, seems to take up a good 70% of my CPU whilst running.. So question is, is this normal for steam to be a resource hog? and also can i exit steam after i launched the game and have the game still running?

No.
Well, I've never tried killing the process while gaming (might get VAC banned or the world might explode?), but you can't exit Steam while playing a game through the application, it sort of like security/ DRM.

Oh come on seriously, What are they doing?,

I guess all those trips to Japan and Australia are talking there toll. Either that or valve has invented some kind of time and space bending machine.

Rumors are 360 version of the demo just got an update or is going to.

Wonder if the full retail game support is going to be like this too. :P
