Avoid triggering Hot Corners accidentally
Authored by: gmachen on Jun 25, '13 09:38:06AM

Now if only from day one, a hidden Dock would not reveal itself when the pointer reaches its screen edge unless accompanied by a user-selectable command key! (Or a click.) Anyone know of a shareware utility that will do that? That godforsaken Dock rearing its ugly head when unwanted has been the bane of my existence for over a decade!

Youíre not the only one! I have been asking this question myself since the first betas of OS X.

My current work around is to add a very long delay to the dock popping open like so:
defaults write autohide-delay -float 10; killall Dock

Then I set F5 on my keyboard to hide/show the dock, so I can control when it pops open.

But yeah, a modifier key is what Iíve always wanted to control the dock as well.
