10.5: Disable Spotlight completely
Authored by: rflorence on Nov 16, '07 08:24:39AM

Removing launchd .plist files is not a good idea: it requires a reboot to take effect, and then a reinstallation of the file and another reboot. The proper way to do this is to use the terminal to do:

sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemon/FILENAME.plist

where FILENAME is the full name.

Specifically, this adds to following key to the plist:

<key>Disabled</key>
<true/>
