Hi all,
Just ran the top command in terminal and noticed I have 2 perl running and 3 dashboardC running. Why is this? I only have 1 dashboard widget running (istat). I also notice that most of the time when exiting itunes it does not remove ituneshelp from the list.

Probably some program and/or system script is using Perl. iTunesHelper is supposed to run all the time, as far as I am aware. I don't know why you have more DashboardClients than widgets, but I don't imagine it's a huge deal.
