Hi, Here is a question I asked in a different thread, but this is probably a better place to put it forward. I use a MBA, and on a regular basis, after using for a while, my CPU goes to more than 50% and the fan maxes out at 6200pm (using only Safari + Word for example). I realized, looking at the Monitor Activity, that I have a "Dashboard Client (Not Responding)" process that takes 90% of the CPU with an RSIZE (?) of 944MB. That doesn't sound right. Now... if I force quitting such process: CPU goes down to 4% to 8% and after 30 seconds or so, the fan starts reducing down very slowly from 6200 back to 2500. Once I have killed the faulty process, all of my widgets are still working (or so they seem). Widgets I am using: - iStat - Google - Wifi locator (can't remember exact name) - Fidelity stock tracker - Digital clock What is the pb with the Dashboard Client ? What do I need to do to fix it ? Thanks, W.
