    turn hiding on/ turn hiding off
    My dock keeps hiding itself. I click "turn hiding off," but it turns itself back on... anyone have a fix?

    You didn't say which OS version you are running...but in many cases go to:

    - Apple Menu
    - System Preferences
    - Dock
    - deselect the box that says "Automatically hide and show the Dock"

    HTH,

    Try moving the dock to a different part of your screen and see if it still autohides, if not move it back and see if hides in its original location.
    I find the best way to locate rogue DHCP servers is to send 240V down the appropriate port. Follow the smoke.

    Also try cmd + opt + D
    Its the shortcut to hiding and showing the dock

    Do you have any other "Dock Customization" applications installed on your computer? If you do...that app. may be what's controlling how your dock behaves...thus you would need to use that app. to make adjustments.

    Otherwise...what I posted above is the way to control the "auto hide/appear" feature of the Dock (works perfectly on my computer).
