    i'm looking for a way to either
    1) kill it off completely
    2. move it to the top of the screen

    i've tried the terminal command

    defaults writes com.apple.dock orientation -string top, which apparently worked in older versions of OS X, but not in leopard.

    so if someone can point me in the right direction, i'd appreciate it.

    yeah, i've given up trying to get it to the top, so i plopped it on the same side as my adium window, which doesn't have a delay to show up when i mouse to the left side. the dock has a smaller delay so it doesn't show up unless i'm careless.

    woot.

    Glad that'll work for you. I've always run with mine hidden, and found the delay just about right. I use the dock all the time and rarely have it un-hide by accident.
