    It is quite annoying. While moving the mouse around in an application, the window will just fly into a side of the screen. I then have to move the mouse to the the edge of the screen where it wandered off to, and click on it to bring it back. I thought this was called "Spaces" so I made sure that was turned off in the Preferences area. I also saw something called "Expose". not sure what this is but there was know way to shut it off. Does anyone know how to stop my mouse from suddenly make application windows "fly" to the edge of the screen? Very annoying and counterproductive.

    thanks

    I'd guess you have hot corners setup.

    It allows you to trigger certain events by putting the mouse in either of the 4 corners of the screen.

    Go to System Preferences -> Desktop & Screen Saver -> Hot Corners...

    Thanks. It seems to have worked.

    I didn't realize you could control a different thing from all each corner of the screen. Pretty cool. But still annoying for my purposes.
