This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I notice that after opening dashboard it brings up telnet in Activity Monitor; when I disable Dashboard using this utility, telnet's CPU usage jumps to about 92% and my CPU temp stays around 171 F. If I quit the telnet process under Activity Monitor everything is quiet again. I never noticed this until I tried Dashboard Manager.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. This seems to work fine except for one annoying problem. I often store open e-mail messages in my dock (by clicking on the yellow minus sign on the message). When I use Dashboard Manager, it pops those e-mails back onto the screen, and I have to stash them away again in the dock. This is a minor problem because I don't use the Dashboard very often and usually leave it disabled.
