    Yup, I've had the same problem on my iMac.

    One solution is to open Terminal and enter:
    killall Dock

    That will kill and relaunch the process.

    Edit: OR!

    You can run this handy little AppleScript a friendly forum user made for me.

    The code is as follows:

    tell application "Terminal"
    activate
    do script with command "killall Dock"
    end tell
    tell application "Terminal"
    activate
    do script with command "killall Terminal"
    end tell

    thanks, ya i wonder if its only on imacs, but apple should really make a fix for it, and there is nothing on support for apple.

    Edit: wait that script is a classic app, plus its an ms-dos executable file, not a script, its listed like .app.exe
