I got a new Macbook a few weeks ago (2GB RAM, 2.4Ghz Core Duo). Recently, it got really sluggish occasionally, up to the point where I could barely run Firefox properly. Went into Activity Monitor and saw this: DashboardClient just leaks out every hour or so, especially when waking from sleep. It's getting really annoying. Here's what I've tried: -Disabling the Dashboard using a Terminal command -Disabling each individual widget manually -Deleting Dashboard .plist files in the Preferences folder -Reinstalling Snow Leopard (NOT a clean install) From what I see, the widgets aren't to blame here. Actually when I do open the Dashboard, there are two "DashboardClients", one 64 bit and one 32 bit. Only the 32 bit consumes more memory. Any ideas?
