    About a week ago my widgets stopped loading, and only one of them is by a third party. I tried removing that one, but it was not the cause.
    I tried disabling all of them, but the manage widgets window froze.

    I opened activity monitor, and forced the unresponsive dashboard to quit, but it would just reopen and become unresponsive again.
    While the dashboard is crashing my computer processors become dominated by this, and the computer gets very hot. The only way to get it to stop is to restart.

    I have a macbook pro, that has been perfectly fine since i got it in december, I can't think of anything I have done recently which would have caused the widgets to suddenly start failing.

    I have noticed that if I wait long enough (like an hour) some do load, like the post-it and the calendar. But even still, they are unresponsive.
