    A cursory google search and search of these forums did nothing to help me. I hope somebody else has encounered this:

    Dock hiding just doesn't work any more. Specifically, the dock WILL hide, but it won't return when I need it to. You can move the cursor to the bottom of the screen (where my dock presently is), and nothing happens. This has happened before, but now it happens consistently. It's awfully frustrating. A couple of times today, hiding wouldn't turn on, either (that is, the dock just wouldn't hide at all), but that's sortof a moot point, since if it HAD hidden, it wouldn't have reappeared.

    So what to do?
    I've tried repairing permissions and i've tried restarting.
    I've got a 1 year old MBP running Tiger.

    I got the same problem - anyone got any ideas. I migrated my user settings to my new imac 21" in August. It's been fine until 2 days ago. WTF?
