comment How can I get the load average (and only the load average) on Mac OS X?
That's perfect. I'm using mankoff's answer, and will continue to, but this answer is the closest to what I was asking. Thanks!

comment Downside of manual shutdown
I wouldn't say that's true @Gerry. That depends greatly on the model of the mac and how long it's sleeping for. It's much more energy efficient to shut down your Mac for the weekend than sleep it!

comment How do I disable Spotlight?

I wish I could give you another +1 for the diskutil command. That's a much cleaner solution than my dd hack :-)
