Not happy about all the CPU cycles that Dashboard is using? I honestly only use dashboard once in a blue moon. Here is an app that will disable it and free up the memory and CPU that it is using up.
Bye Bye Dashboard is a free utility to easily and painlessly remove the Dashboard. Tests show that the Dashboard uses a siginificant amount of CPU power even when not in use. It has also shown to use a large ammount of internet bandwith. Also in a corporate enviroment the Dahsboard could be come a distration to employees. Thus Bye Bye Dashboard is made.
