Does anybody know how to link applications to open and close at the same time? I would like to have itunes and gimmesometunes (displays the current song) to open and close at the same time so that gimmesometunes doesn't waste memory when I'm not listening to music. Help?

Let me ask you this,...

Do you use Dashboard? If you do than you must be aware of how much memory that eats up. If you don't, then I wouldn't worry about the memory that some 1mb helper app uses.

Well okay, let me ask the same question, only I'll point out that I have disabled the dashboard.

Can it be done?

you could write an applescript to open all the programs you want to open at the same time:
Code:
tell application "name of first app" to activate
tell application "name of second app" to activate
save this as an app, then when you open it, all the apps you have listed will open

or if you want to be able to open and close you could use this:
Code:
display dialog "Open/Close" buttons {"Cancel", "Close", "Open"} default button 3
if the button returned of the result is "H-Drive" then
	tell application "name of first app" to activate
	tell application "name of second app" to activate
	
else
	tell application "name of first app" to quit
	tell application "name of second app" to quit
end if
there may be an easier way but i dont know how to do it
