    I only got my first Mac for about 8-9 years today and I am just wondering if there is anyway to turn the Dashboard widgets off? I don't use them and I see that they use a fair bit of RAM, about 8Mb each, since I have no need for them and I think that the extra 32Mb of RAM would come in handy I want to turn them off. Can anyone tel me if this is possible and if so how to do it?

    When I close them they just open again, even when I force close them and when I boot up they start automatically, is there a way to stop this. I am only using 10.4.7 if that matters.
