I have been googling around to find a way to remove the dock on a Mac OSX Lion. However, I understand that there could be complications in retrieving minimized windows. So disabling it completely is not an option.
However, I would like it if the mouse over events did nothing to hide or unhide the dock. I find that the keyboard shortcut (Command + Option + D) works fine for me.
I haven't seen anyone ask for removal of the dock this way specifically, if so then I apologize for the duplicate question. Is this possible?
