2) if you launch NetworkMananger, i just don't do service NetworkManager

NetworkManager doesn't start the network until the user logs in. So if you have services that need a network to start (such as NTP), they will fail if started at boot. The dispatcher allows you to control those services so they start and stop with the network rather than at boot.
