View Full Version : Hiden Dock Stays Hidden
01-24-2002, 12:03 AM
Several times, I've activated the System Pref for Dock to hide when not using it. It then pops up when I move the cursor near the bottom of the screen. But sometimes if I'm dragging icons (for example trying to throw something into the trash) down to it, the Dock won't pop up!! I have to turn off Auto Hide mode checkbox in the System Prefs for Doc, then drag the icon.
Anyone seen that? What's the cure? Or is this a bug?

I've seen this a couple of times. If I just quit the dock (via the Terminal or ProcessViewer), it starts behaving again.
Seems like a bug!

How do you quit the Dock?

GUI: Run ProcessViewer (in Utilities), find the Dock entry, highlight it, select File -> Force Quit (I think that's right).
% ps ax | grep Dock
This returns something like:
465 ?? S 0:18.71 /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Con...Dock
(I trimmed some width). Then just:
% kill 465
and the dock will quit and restart.
