When I use the Search Application box, I keep getting suggestions for applications, which boggle the speed of the search down to a halt (The whole thing is very slow as it is, on a EEEpc netbook), Is there a way to make Unity stop offering suggestions? I can't find anywhere to actually configure that thing
