    Strange issue: Disappearing Dock
    I just had a goofy problem. I'm sure it's been solved in the forum before, but a casual search for the word "dock" brings up too many diverse threads. My dock disappeared! When I drug my mouse down to the bottom of the screen, my dock didn't fade up like it normally does. A restart solved it. I guess the dock app just stopped responding. Is there a trick to fixing this if it happens again (though, I've never encountered it before).

    Open the program "Terminal" (Applications>Utilities) and type:

    killall Dock

    Then press Return. This resets the application.

    Most likely the Dock just crashed. It happens from time to time.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
