Here's the AppleScript: tell application "Dock" to quit Here's the shell script: osascript -e "tell application \"Dock\" to quit"

Thanks for your amendments - I even know another shell script:

killall Dock

But the "mini-app" should help people who fear Terminal.app and who do not write scripts or apps.

Okay this is getting ridiculous. Stop releasing stuff. 2 major releases within 3 days of each other? Stop. Maybe you can release something every few weeks when you revise a code that works just fine over and over and over again. But please. Stop hogging space on the main page with this. Please don't take this offensively. I like the app. I just don't like your MU etiquette...

Sorry, if this looks like MU spamming. I've received user feedback so I've just fulfilled their needs, and I have to do this when I've got enough spare time.

You know that your icon is the reserved icon of the Dock from Apple ? Maybe you can get trouble with it... Best Regards, Tobias Jordan. Ahhh - I changed the name of my application to DockReboot. :-)

This app is almost 2 years old and was developed by Alex_T a former MacParc member. I was really surprised by MacUpdate's mail about the addition of DockRestarter... :-)
