Horrible interface. No way to tell which way your toggling anything.

Keep away from this faceless & useless app. !!!!

After a few tries & a restart my SystemUIServer.app became corrupted.
Fount at : /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemUIServer.app

My menu bar started to flash SpotLight's icon on & off every second and all but Butler disppaeared off my menubar, no time display or sound menu items were visible.

Re-installed Mac OSX 10.4.6 PPC Combo & all's working again now.

Mac Light is written in AppleScript and the source is viewable by opening it in Script Editor.

What it seems to try to do is move the Spotlight system files to a different location (and thereby disabling Spotlight).

For what it's worth, it didn't work for me.

It's an Applescript, so if you open it in Script Editor you can see what it does.

Basically it just renames the Search bundle with a dot in front of it. Or it should. I'm not sure why it doesn't.

As with the previous poster, it seems to have no effect, even after a restart.
