    Hi all,

    I'm using my gestures a lot on my 2011 MBA 13. When I swipe four fingers to the left, dashboard opens with all my widgets. I was trying to add something to a note and as soon as I'd start typing, it would go back to the other desktop (as in leave dashboard). I'd swipe again to enter dashboard and type a letter, then it would go back to the other desktop (in this case it was mail, but it does it even when I quit mail).

    I swiped to enter dashboard just to see how long it would stay...it stays for about 1 second then goes back to the other desktop. It's driving me nuts!!!

    Did you figure this out? I was having a similar problem, but music was playing and the dashboard was opening up several links in safari that were references on the local drive and would never render. I deleted a widget from the dashboard the problem seemed to go away, but I don't understand what caused it in the first place!?!:
