    Is there any way to turn off Dashboard altogether? I really never user Dashboard for anything, just seems like a waste of resources. Thanks

    I've been using the first option for some time on my iBook and it works just peachily.... :)

    At versiontracker I noticed some people complaining about dock crashes with the disable utility. Someone posted the following reply:

    No need for an application for something that can be done easily from the command line:
    To turn Dashboard off:
    # defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean YES
    To turn Dashboard on:
    # defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean NO
    You have to restart the Dock after making either change for it to take effect:
    # killall Dock
