Easily and painlessly remove the Dashboard.

Overview

Bye Bye Dashboard allows you to remove the Dashboard. Tests show that the Dashboard uses a siginificant amount of CPU power even when not in use. It has also shown to use a large amount of Internet bandwith. Also in a corporate environment the Dashboard could be come a distraction to employees. Thus Bye Bye Dashboard was made.

The Dashboard is in no way an essential part of OS X, it is simply another application built into OS X. Disabling the Dashboard is in no way a permanent operation. Bye Bye Dashboard also works the other way. It can easily enable the Dashboard in seconds. This is rather useful if you want to have the Dashboard disabled but still have the ability to use it when you desire it.

I hope you like Bye Bye Dashboard, and if you have any comments or feedback please email me

Putting it back is as easy as deleting it, Aristotle.

Running on a 2GHz iMac G5 with 10.4.5. No problems whatsoever. Would like to have it silently DISABLE dashboard upon login, but it's not scriptable :-( But it does what it says, so great!

Downloaded it. Ran it. Eliminated it (Dashboard, that is). Works like it was described. Running it reset the dock, then prevented Dashboard from activating. Running B/W G3 (upgraded to G4) with 10.4.4.

Didn't work for me neither. Not that it dissapeared or anything, it just didn't result in any sort of a change. I'll post my results with pictures on : http://itech.webwarp.net
