Unfreeze when moving between spaces
Authored by: asmeurer on Jul 18, '11 05:25:40PM

So this dashboard thing may have been a coincidence, or else it only works in certain cases, because I too have found that it does not always work.

I just did Control-C and that made it go away two consecutive times, but again, that may also be a coincidence. Maybe someone else could try that?

The one way that does always work is, as other commenters have said, to lock the screen (I didn't know about this when I submitted this hint). If you have have your screensaver set to lock immediately, you can use a hot corner. Otherwise, I recommend putting the lock icon in your menu bar (go to the preferences in the Keychain application).

Two things:

First, Control-C definitely works. I did it several times, and it worked every time.

Second, this is no longer an issue in Lion (thank God!).
