    At my school they've disabled users from accessing all panes in system preferences except display/accounts.

    Meaning you have to work around their restrictions if you want to like change your desktop image. (open the image in safari, right click and choose use as desktop background :) )


    One thing which really annoys me is the placement of the dock. It's static and way too large for my liking. (I like it a lot smaller, auto-hiding/showing, and magnification )


    So anybody know if it's possible to change the values via terminal to set the dock to auto-hide? (something like defaults write com.apple.dock showhidden)

    Yup!
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock autohide -bool true
