    By little finder windows, I mean this kind:

    Cmd+W and escape have no effect, but I just hate using the mouse for simple tasks like closing windows :).

    They have to be selected before the keyboard command will work, sometimes they are just in the background... in your image it's selected. I think. Can't check as I'm on XP :mad:

    Sounds like repeating the command to open those mini windows is the one that closes it?

    Correct.

    COMMAND-W doesn't close these type of Windows, so the command that opens it, usually closes it too.
    A bit strange IMHO. Letting COMMAND-W close any active Window is the "consistent" way.
