    Do you maybe have a widget that’s causing this – a timer or reminder one, for example? You could try temporarily deactivating them one by one to see if you can pin point if one of them is the cause.

    Do you have an active screen corner set up to bring up the dashboard? Are you moving the mouse into that corner by accident?
