    Free up CPU resources for Al. Powerbook?
    I'm curious to see if there's a list of processes that I can safely turn off in Activity Monitor or by way of some other utility.

    I have a 1.5 15" Powerbook, and it's primary function is as a DAW with Pro Tools.

    I just switched to Macs last year, and have learned a lot from this forum...

    I know with Windows computers, there's all kinds of services and functions you can turn off to free up resources.. These are *essential* for proper audio recording.

    I'd love to know what's "safe" to turn off on a MAC.

    I already turned off "iTunes helper," as I read it was not essential.

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated!
    Keep in mind, the Powerbook's function as a DAW is more important than anything else. The only other thing I do with it is light surfing and email check.

    By the way, I guess I should have mentioned I'm using 10.4.11...
