Permanently disable Dock icon bouncing
Authored by: zzxx99rr on Jan 05, '09 05:03:53PM

What I'd really like to have is a limit to xx bounces (like 2 or 3 bounces). Some apps do this and others will bounce for hours until you acknowledge... but maybe there is no way to set this as an override for what the app specs other than zero. I don't mind a couple bounces as an alert but certainly get annoyed when I have to stop something else I'm doing to get the bouncing to stop if will continue indefinitely.

I agree.

What's interesting is that they've managed to implement this for the Downloads folder. Have you noticed that when something finishes downloading, you get the 'thunk' sound, and the Downloads folder bounces *once*.

Give us that option! ;-}
