A possible fix for non-functioning function key shortcuts
Authored by: guns on Apr 11, '09 03:42:22PM

Since the Dock is the parent process for Dashboard, killing the Dock process normally kills the Dashboard too (with signal SIGINT or SIGHUP). It always relaunches too, since it is marked as a persistent process for launchd.

I have had a few problems with keyboard focus and with the application switcher not showing up (Command-TAB); Killing the Dock solves these problems every time.
