Always keep an application open
Authored by: lemac on Jun 21, '11 03:47:10PM

Thanks for the suggestion. This is quite technical. I am in no way a developer and got lost in the instruction. I was hoping for a simple solution like the one presented in this hint. I don't mind having the icon showing the application open in the dock but would like to hide the window.

Maybe this explanation can help, if you want to hide dock icon. (From here: http://growl.info/documentation/hardwaregrowler.php)

Disabling the dock icon:
Because HG doesn't really have any user-interaction features, you may follow these steps to disable the dock icon. Navigate to wherever you placed HG and right-click on it and select "Show Package Contents." Open up contents and then right-click Info.plist. Highlight "Open With" and select TextEdit from the list (If TextEdit is not in the list, choose "Other..." and navigate to TextEdit and click "Open").
Paste the following just after <dict>:
<key>LSUIElement</key>
<true/>
