    coming from pc's i will soon be the proud owner of a macbook pro (waiting for leopard because i dont need it till fall) basically i was just curious what is the equivalent on macs side to a disk cleanup and/or a disk defrag..i think i remember some guy at the apple store saying that all that is cleared out when the mac is turned off but i'm not positive

    Typically, Mac don't really need to be defragged due to the way the filesystem is handled by the OS (defragmentation is done behind the scenes while the system is idle).

    If you want to do disk cleanup type stuff, I recommend a product called OnyX from Titanium Software.
