    I like to keep my dock automatically hidden, but I want it to appear instantly when I hover the mouse over the bottom of the screen.

    How can I do that?

    Not hide it? Then it'll always be instantly available.

    I think you misunderstand. I want it to appear instantly when I hover the mouse over the dock area.

    In preferences panes there's one for show/hide dock. If you choose that option the dock is hidden except when you mouse over it. It doesn't appear instantly, but it's pretty quick. Can't make it go faster than that though.

    That's not possible I'm afraid. What's wrong with the speed it appears at anyway?

    I didn't misunderstand; if you want "instant" dock access don't hide it, otherwise you'll have to wait the approx. 1/3 of a second for it to come up.

    I just timed it on a quad G5 PPC running Leopard and its more like 1/2 a second and its freaking annoying. I cant believe there is no mod or hack to make it pop up instantly.

    I dont generally hide my dock for this very reason. If it was faster,then it would be tolerated better.

    I have to agree with the OP. I would rather have the dock instantly appear than have a delay. I nice mod to adjust the dock hiding speed would be nice.

    That's rediculous, if you leave the dock on you lose the screen space, if you hide it you lose time, it seems perfectly normal to ask for a way to have both.
