Recently, I have noticed that the DashboardClient process is constantly using 2-3% of the CPU, even if the dashboard is not showing. I suspected that it might be Snow Leopard or iStat Pro. Sure enough, when I disabled iStat Pro, the dashboard CPU use went down to almost zero. I am worried that the constant CPU use will adversely affect the battery life (every bit counts) since it keeps the CPU from staying in low power mode longer. Does anyone know of a workaround or fix for this? I don't think older versions of iStat used this much CPU. I don't want to just disable it because it is so useful. I also don't want to use the Stop Dashboard widget since it takes a long time to load it next time. I have a MBP 4,1, 10.6.0, and the latest version of iStat.
