    How do I turn off dashboard? Since I upgraded to tiger my computers have been lagging quit a bit and I think it's because of dashboard. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Try quitting all widgets.
    Any speedup? If not then you could be barking up the wrong tree.
    There are a lot worse things in OS X than dashboard if you only have a few open. I am running on a G3 500 384GB RAM, and don't notice the slowdown until I evoke the DB and have lots of widgets open, all vying for that bandwidth at once!

    Do we really need another one of these threads?

    I'm sure there are other threads out there too.
