enabled + disabled compared

Even if you don't use any widgets, when you press F12, you can instantly see the change. That means that something is working in the background. I still didn't find out what process is that, but I believe that it is on kernel level.
Since disabling Dashboard few weeks ago, stability of the system improved dramatically so my theory that it runs directly from the kernel space got some credibility.

Yes, it's called Dock.app. If you view processes hierarchically in Activity Monitor you will see all widget processes are children of the Dock. If you don't have any widgets running, Dashboard will do nothing. Anything you think you detect is a placebo.
