Mac OS X will not activate and deactivate fonts. You must manually add and remove them from the various system Font folders. Additionally, the Mac OS X's font panel will only allow you to group your fonts (all of which are active) and even then it only works in Cocoa applications. There are very few Cocoa applications at this point, most are Carbon or simply run in Classic.

Suitcase 10.1 give you the ability to store your fonts wherever you like, not just the four Mac OS X font locations. It allows you to quickly and easily turn on and off fonts, thereby minimizing your font menu and saving on system resources. It also allows you to manage fonts for any application from one place. Fonts activated through Suitcase 10.1 will be available to Cocoa, Carbon, and Classic applications.
