How to Disable Dashboard & Spotlight


With usually a 1GB ram limit you need all you can get, so if you can get some back from features you don't use, then WHY NOT. SO were going to be killing Dashboard ( Which is what displays widgets ). And Spotlight (Search)

To disable Dashboard Open > Application > Utilities > Terminal

And type:

> defaults write mcx-disabled -boolean YES


>  Killall Dock

>  defaults write mcx-disabled -boolean NO

> Killall Dock

You might have to restart to see effect


Open Applicaton > Utilitities > Terminal


> sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

Once you disable both and restart you should see some effects ^_^
