    Hello all,
    I was wondering if there is an application available that will allow you measure how much a running application is tasking your RAM and processor. Many thanks for your help.

    (I ask because I recently downloaded a programme called DarkAdapter. It allows me to make my display even dimmer than the default dimming device on the new unibody Macbook. When I run the programme, however, my machine noticeably slows down.)

    Best,
    bahen

    Remember to show all processes.

    Great. Many thanks.

    So, DarkAdapter uses an unjustifiable amount of processor and memory capacity to run. Does anyone know of any other program that can be used to make the display dimmer than the dimmest option available with the default brightness application on the Macbook?
