Here is what I tried:

$ ps -fel|grep guix


4 S root      1118     1  0  80   0 -  2208 poll_s 08:37 ?        00:00:00 
0 S root      7892  5848  0  80   0 -  4134 pipe_w 08:59 pts/0    00:00:00 grep 
--color=auto guix

So there is something running, but I could not find a restart parameter in:

$ /var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/current-guix/bin/guix-daemon --help

I also already rebooted multiple times (really shutdown the machine and
then start it again by pressing the power button and carrying it around
separated from power source) between the GUIX installation and now. How
would I restart that daemon and would that have any effect, having
already rebooted multiple times?

Thanks for everyone's help so far!

Oh and I saw the message about the mailing lists. I think I should take
this question over there : )
