    Hello, I have noticed that whenever I enter into full screen more for either joost, quicktime, powerpoint, etc, my dock does not disappear, rather it remains on the screen. I have tried toggling it to hide/unhide and I have also tried restarting the computer altogether, and i have had no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you:D

    try re-launching the dock by typing "killall Dock" in the terminal. if this doesnt work try deleting the com.apple.dock.plist preference file in home/library/preferences NB: this will set your dock to default settings.

    No, neither seemed to work. The dock still doesn't disappear when entering into fullscreen mode for applications.

    I have tried that before and it didnt work. However, I think I found the solution. There was a system preferences item in the "other" category entitled application enhancer. I believe it came with an app called menufela. Anyway i disabled it and I had no problems with the dock after that. Thank you for your help!

    good to see you solved the problem:). application enhancer is known to cause a few problems with the OS and recently caused the "blue screen" when installing leopard.
