    solution

    this is a temporary solution --



    Step 1: From Activity Monitor, determine the process id (column PID) for AMCMenu - e.g. 100.



    Step 2: Open a terminal window and type the following runes:

    sudo kill -stop <value of PID from Step 1>

    e.g. sudo kill -stop 100



    It will ask for your password - type it fearlessly.

    you are done......



    --------------------------------------------------------------------



    To release it into the wild again:



    Either:

    sudo kill -cont <value of PID from Step 1>

    e.g. sudo kill -cont 100



    Or:

    it will be started automatically when you restart your Mac.









    thanx
