K i never really used activity monitor before but i was just checking it cause Maya 6.5 would unexpected quit a lot, (maybe this is because of tiger)? K, i know widgets arent taking any %CPU but its taking about 20MB under the real category under System memory. Is that for the ram? cause i only have 1gb, and so i was wondering maybe i should just close the widgets if it takes that much memory? i have no idea when it comes to this talk. like if i closed all the widgets from dashboard would maya run better or its a bug??? thanks.
