    I have a MacBook running Snow Leopard that quite some time ago, in an effort to save memory, I used a Terminal command that made the icons clear from the dock as soon as the application was quit.

    I thought I had bookmarked the forum post where I got it, but either I did and it got erased or I... didn't. And now none of my google-fu can re-find the entry and I'm stuck.

    Thanks for all your help in advance!

    Does that mean not even right clicking the Dock icon of the running application and selecting "Keep in Dock" or dragging the application from the Applications folder to the Dock do work?

    Not sure what command it was, but you can always reset your preferences by deleting the Dock preferences file in /Users/(your username)/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Dock.plist

    The easiest way is drag the application to the dock before opening it
