These idiots on here can whine and complain about this being a meaningless application, but I disagree. This is the most ultra-simple way to switch your dashboard on and off, period. I started to try copying and pasting into Terminal and thought I would just download this and give it a try first. Glad I did because it works flawlessly and I won't have to worry about having the code handy if I want to turn it back on again later.

Kudos to the developer of this little gem! 5 stars!!

You either love Dashboard or you hate it. I hate it. Passionately. I just *hate* to see it pop up whenever I press F12 by mistake. With Dashboardkiller, it's so easy to enable/disable the thing (I'm running Dashboardkiller on Snow Leopard). So, thanks!

that last bit of information was VERY really helpful about not needing dashboard killer however I Like the fact I can use dasboard killer to turn dashboard off and on at a click of the button on my desk top. I use dashboard to check out movie times, doing it through the preferences, doesn't show me its turned of and its finally nice to know I can turn it on and off with a click... OKAY CALL ME LAZY but I think its nice just being able to see it in my dock and seeing something say "DASHBOARD IS OFF," not to mention saving on my ram!!!! thanks dude!!!!

Pretty useful little utility!!!!

Being a Terminal Geek myself, I have set up cron to run the "defaults write..." thing on login, so Dashboard is permanently OFF on my system (saved me about 30 Mb of RAM!), but for the average Mac user, I think this is a welcome addition to the Dock.

And with that price, who can complain ;)
