    My macbook Pro 15" late 2008 with Snow Leopard 10.6.1 is running hotter than before.

    On checking with Activity Monitor I find that I have two processes of DashboardClient running as follows:

    16101 DashboardClient xxxxx 1.8 5 24.1 MB Intel 48.9 MB

    and

    17674 DashboardClient xxxxx 0.1 5 76.1 MB Intel (64 bit) 223.5 MB

    Why are there two processes of the same name running, and can I remove one of them, and if so, which one and how?

    Can this be the cause of the higher temperature?

    There is probably one for each widget on your dashboard.
