Try this one, I just found it - position your cursor anywhere on the screen, and press any of the directional keys (up, left, right, down). The cursor should disappear!
This could be used for screenshots and stuff.
I know its really minor, but I just thought I should tell you people. ;)

Yes, we know. I'd call that a feature, not a glitch. Then the cursor doesn't get in the way when scrolling through a document.

Doesn't this happen when nearly ANY key is pressed? :confused:
No. Just the cursor keys. Some individual programs hide the mouse cursor when hitting any key, but that's not universal like the cursor key thing is.

Still here.
Well, when using Firefox anyways (haven't tested in other programs yet, not on the Mac right now) typing anything at all with the exception of the function keys causes the cursor to disappear.

I know that in most cases the Delete key also does this.
