    I'm not sure what in the hell is going on but as soon as I just restarted, I noticed all minimizing in my windows were gone. This includes every window I open---Safari, Pages, Finder, etc. The circle is still there but it's turned gray and won't do anything.

    Ummm, serious help needed!

    I've noticed this too, there seems to be nothing that causes it and nothing I can do that will fix it.
    Except for closing all the open windows and reopening them.
    It does seem to happen more with Safari then anything else though.

    Oh yeah, Tiger 10.4.1, all my applications are updated. New PB (not even a month...)

    Is the Dock running? Does Expose work? Does Dashboard work?

    This is a documented bug that has been discussed on this forum before. 10.4.2 is supposed to fix it. I haven't seen the problem since I updated.

    EDIT: oh yeah, the quick fix is to maximize with the green button then unmaximize. Usually works.
