    I want a sticky notes widget for my dashboard, I like the stickies app but it crowds my desktop and it doesn't look the best. I tried to download Stickiesplus, but it wouldn't work. Any recommendations?


    And secondly, I now there is an app for seeing activity monitor like information in the taskbar, it shows two horizontal scales and I think it's for CPU processes, what is it?

    There is a Stickies widget that comes with Mac OS X.
    iStat Pro is a widget that displays system info in Dashboard.
    iStat Menus can put the same info on the Menu Bar.

    I have the Stickies widget, but I want those to appear in dashboard, not on my desktop. I already have iStat Pro, but I'll look into iStat Menus. Thank you!

    How else does the Stickies widget appear other than in Dashboard?

    The Stickies widget, like all widgets, DOES appear in the Dashboard, not on the Desktop.
