Easily restore a lost desktop picture
Authored by: timbloom on Jan 14, '05 04:32:57PM

I actually solved this problem in a somewhat different manner. If you go to the terminal, and kill the dock process, your previous desktop will show back up. Any minimized windows will pop back up to full size too. A friend actually made a really simple program that I keep in my dock that does this. I have to head to work right now, but maybe I can upload it to my webserver and provide you all a link to it. Works like a charm.

Easily restore a lost desktop picture

I've recently began to have a related problem. When I disconnect an external monitor (TV) from my Powerbook, the mouse pointer dissapears leaving me helpless to use my Powerbook.

My only solution has been a reboot.

Anyone find a soluton for this?
