    Hidden Dock - Improve speed
    Hey guys, when the dock is hidden, is there anyway to increase the speed of how quickly it shows it self again when you mouse over it? For e.g currently i need to hover my mouse down for about 1.5 seconds before it shows up i would really like it to be instant and then change it whenever i need to.

    Thanks guys, i really hope theres as tweak out there for this!!

    27" Core 2 Duo Mac OS X (10.6.3)

    Nope, there is no way to do this that I've ever seen, or can locate from Googling around.

    There is a keyboard command to instantly toggle the Dock's hiding status: OPTION-CMD-D
    Using that would instantly show your Dock, though you would have to repeat the command to re-hide it. If you have a spare button on your mouse that's not mapped to anything, you could use something like USB Overdrive to map it to that command, or to an unused F-key on your keyboard.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    ...although your estimate of 1.5 seconds does seem like there is a delay. I don't think mine takes that long.
