    Hey, i know there are other post about docks here...but i couldnt find one exactly like what i am experiencing. I have a MBP c2d running 10.5.2 and i was watching some video on youtube and right when it was going to switch to the screen saver, i quickly touched the trackpad...and the dock was gone...whats up?
    thanks

    You probably turned hiding on accidentally. CMD-OPT-D will bring the dock back & turn hiding off again.

    Have you restarted since this happened?

    If not, you can always try going into terminal and typing

    killall Dock

    which should reset your dock.

    If you're not too sure about going into terminal, however, you should probably just stick with restarting if you haven't already... tell us how it goes.

    Do you remember exactly what happened when the dock disappeared? Are you sure you didn't press anything else? And have you installed any dock modifiers?

    it seemed to have only happened when the screen saver ( i was using the itunes artwork one) is about to come on....there is a few seconds when the screen turns black before the artwork shows up...if i hit the track pad at that time...the desktop comes back but without the dock....a friend suggested deleting the dock .plst file
