Only if your application is writing to the database. If you have no 
application running, then MySQL should have no activity. So you must have 
some sort of application writing or reading from the database.

What does "Show ProcessList" display? (Run MySQL.Exe and run this command.) 
This will tell you which user is connected to the database and what sql 
command is executing. Post the results here so we can look at it.
