Aside from doing the usual maintenance items (i.e. onyX etc.), there is a chance the dock plist is corrupt. You could try deleting it but you will probably have to add ALL your icons back into the dock manually. The name of the plist is com.apple.dock.plist in the user prefs folder. BTW: onyX does reset the Launch Services database and that is sometimes (but not often) the cause of problems. My first stop would be the MacFixit database to see if anything has been reported. Second, maybe try onyx - but limit it to the LS database. Lastly, maybe try the plist delete. Good luck. Brian S.
