I have the same problem! It is completely unacceptable to hijack my computer wih this **bleep**, and I can't turn it off....well in fact I can.....
Goodbye BlackBerry Desktop...uninstalled.
Goodbye blackberry....it was a piece of **bleep** anyway.... Especially after a three day service interruption....
@RIM Enjoy the your slide into irrelevance and bankruptcy.

Found your post while searching for a solution to the daemon wreaking havoc on my system, but wanted to tip my hat to your music collection. A-ha is such a great band!
ps. I got my first iPhone last week, ditching my Bold 9700.

What a Busch league programming staff RIM must employ for Apple software. The only solution to solve this problem is to 'completely uninstall it'? How does this even make it our the door or pass the QC process? This is the basic issue I have with RIM products - the lack of attention to details to make sure that the end user process is as integrated and painless as possible. The RIM daemons constantly consuming 90% - 100% of processor time on a Mac is just so inexcusable.

Bush league is right. i don't even have my BB connected right now (it was replaced by an iPhone two weeks ago), and the BB Desktop Manager app isn't running, nor has it been launched in two weeks. And yet the RimAlbumArtDaemon process is still sucking my resources dry, currently using 43.8% of my processor. If I force quit the process it just comes back a few seconds later.
RIM, take note: this is one of the reasons you are losing market share. Your products are really starting to suck but you don't seem to care.

I recently found this process running on my laptop as well. i am on 10.6.8.
I had never seen it until i updated itunes. i have subsequently deleted my BlackBerry Desktop software.
any news on what this was? Or whether it will be fixed?

Deleting BB Desktop Software may not make this go away, you'll need to be familiar with using Terminal and the launchctl command to make sure that BBDaemon, RIMAlbumArtDaemon and BBLaunchAgent are all told to stop and then are deleted. You will have to do this separately while logged in as each user on your computer (if there's more than one) and you'll have to do it again as root if you have a root user enabled on your computer.
You will need to scan through the output of the `ps -ef`command on your computer to look for any processes for BBDaemon and BBLaunchAgent to be extra sure that they are not running. It's a pain.
These are functions that *should* be handled by the BB Uninstaller and are not because of some planning and coding practices by whoever has written this software and these installers that are just plain lazy.

ok, so you are saying that periodically these processes will start up again, even after uninstalling the BB Desktop software using the uninstaller?
i did this - but did not find any processes
launchd% stop com.rim.RimAlbumArtDeamon
launchctl stop error: No such process
launchd% remove com.rim.RimAlbumArtDaemon
launchctl remove error: No such process
does that mean the files are gone or still there, do you think?
