I would be careful running any kind of maintenance program. The temp files and cache files are all created for a reason. Deleting them just makes the Mac run slower until they are rebuilt. The cron files run automagically, you don't need to run them manually. And I would not run Onyx until you completely understand what it is doing. It can remove files that are needed by certain programs. Choosing what it does and doesn't remove means that you need to be smarter than it is!

6) Burn anything, anytime under the File menu when you are on your Desktop. Programs like Toast have a bunch of extra features, but the basics are built in.

7) No need to worry too much about your battery. They have logic circuits that prevent over-charging. Taking the battery out will immediately cut the CPU speed and Murphy's law will guarantee you will knock the mag safe out while working on an important document!
