Kill the Dock in Mac OS X

()

To kill the dock in Mac OS X, in a Terminal, type:

killall Dock

The dock will shut down and  re-start automatically.  If do not want the dock to run at all—for example if you want to free up memory or free up pixels from the screen—remove the /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app directory with:

cd /System/Library/CoreServices
sudo mv Dock.app Dock.app.orig
killall Dock
