What kind of things can you do to your mac to keep it running properly? Like how on Windows you can do disk fragmater (or something like that?). And what can you do to prevent your memory and RAM from being used up?

Thanks!

Thanks!

One question- what should my setting be so the maintenance thing will run on my computer? Should I remove the check mark next to allowing the harddisks to sleep when possible?
