Sometimes the dock decides to freeze, magnafication doesn't work and it doesn't come out of hiding. (I keep it hidden)

I can still launch programs from it (when I enable it from the finder menu) and i can right click it. It just completely disappears.

I'm using a mini on OSX10.4

I would suggest repairing permissions first. That usually clears up funny things like that.
