this is a temporary solution --

Step 1: From Activity Monitor, determine the process id (column PID) for AMCMenu - e.g. 100.

Step 2: Open a terminal window and type the following runes:

sudo kill -stop <value of PID from Step 1>

e.g. sudo kill -stop 100

It will ask for your password - type it fearlessly.

you are done......


To release it into the wild again:

Either:

sudo kill -cont <value of PID from Step 1>

e.g. sudo kill -cont 100

Or:

it will be started automatically when you restart your Mac.

thanx
