Question "Solo" in Pro Tools HD?

When you "solo" a track in Pro Tools HD, is it just an audio cut (or solo) or are all the other channels truly not playing.... AND are all the "other" audio channels and plugs no longer engaged or using CPU/processing power... except the "solo'd" track?

Curious.

Solo is just a monitor function, it does not release resources of the other tracks.. otherwise it would have to reallocate DSP, RAM etc. when you unsolo which wouldn't be instant.

If you want to make a track inactive, select the region(s) and hit apple+M

That is a misnomer. What you are describing is muting a region.

Making a track inactive is something different.

right. To make a track inactive you can command-option-click on the waveform symbol in the mix window or just select track name and go to "track/make inactive"

Maybe it's just a setting that I have, but I just click (or right click) on that part of the track and it gives me the option to inactivate the track.

My bad. I guess you're right.... Making the track inactive is different. However, correct me if I'm wrong, but using the apple+m shortcut to mute a region is different than the mute on the channel/track - the way it was explained to me was that PT isn't pulled the muted/grayed sections from the hard drive.
