    Hey all,

    How much memory and systems resouces does Konfabulator drain? I have two widgets running, the to-do list and the weather one.

    Does this cause significant drain on batteries?

    Does Konfabulator start-up after a reboot or does one have to manually restart the app?

    Also if I want to remove Konfabulator, do I just take the icon in the applications folder and trash it? And then take my widgets folder and trash that (I am from the windows world, where you can't do that...So again confused)?

    Sorry if these questions are laughable, I have never used Widgets before and so I do not know what to expect.

    It does not take much resource. And so, it doesnt drain much battery either.
    There is a widget called 'better whats going on'. It shows the top 4 processes taking your cpu and memory. I always have that running. And konfabulator very rarely shows in that list.
    About reboot, I think its in Konfabulator-preferences, you can set the behavior.
    And yes, to trash it, just trash the konfabulator icon from your applications folder, and the widgets folder from documents. If you really want to be clean, there will be a folder 'kongabulator' and a file com.konfabulator.plist in your library/preferences folder. Trash those two too.
