For a while i thought my HDD was going bad because it would constantly be accessing something but as it turns out the culprit is Spotlight. I use spotlight to launch apps a lot, so i type: Cmd+Space Terminal Enter ...and terminal launches. The problem i found is that even after selecting Terminal, with mouse or keyboard, Spotlight continues to search even though i have the item open and the dropdwn menu has closed. I have to manually go to the menu and click the little X to cancel the search. I dont recall this happening in Leopard and its starting to piss me off. Is there anything i can do to remedy this?
