Here is a good command that will give you a list of services and whether or not they have started.

From your terminal window / command prompt run:

systemctl list-unit-files --type=service

and it will give you a list of various services that are enabled / disabled etc.

username@computername:~$ systemctl list-unit-files --type=service
UNIT FILE                                  STATE          
accounts-daemon.service                    enabled        
acpid.service                              disabled       
alsa-restore.service                       static         
alsa-state.service                         static         
alsa-utils.service                         masked         
anacron.service                            enabled        
apparmor.service                           enabled        
apport-autoreport.service                  static         
apport-forward@.service                    static         
apport.service                             generated      
apt-daily-upgrade.service                  static         
apt-daily.service                          static         
autovt@.service                            enabled        
avahi-daemon.service                       enabled        
blk-availability.service                   enabled        
bluetooth.service                          disabled       
bolt.service                               static         

If that is too much and you just want to see a list of running services (for example) then run the command:

systemctl list-unit-files --type=service | grep enabled

this will filter out all services except those enabled.
