    I've had a small problem with my dock for a week now - all applications (except Finder) no longer have a light at the bottom to indicate that it's active. The applications seem to work fine (though Firefox has frozen on me a few times now), but when I open them they no longer bounce. In the case of my iChat, when someone IM's me, a red number showing how many new messages I have doesn't appear anymore, nor does the icon bounce.

    - I've tried restarting my system multiple times
    - I've checked System Preferences, and all the right options are checked

    Last thing - I downloaded uTorrent yesterday, and without manually placing the icon on my dock, it doesn't show up on my dock when it's active. It's like my dock crashed but everything else is fine :eek:

    Would appreciate any input :D
