Introducing YippieMove '09. Easy email transfers. Now open for all destinations.

Did Expose/Spaces stop working all of the sudden? This happens to me almost every day. Most of this time this is when I resume my MacBook Pro at home. I assume this has something to do with the fact that I have an external monitor connected at the office, and that somehow messes with Expose/Spaces. Luckily there is a quite simple solution.

  • Fire up Activity Monitor (/Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor)
  • Filter the results for ‘Dock’
  • Click on ‘Dock’ and ‘Quit Process’
Filter for 'Dock' in Activity Monitor

Filter for 'Dock' in Activity Monitor

Unfortunately this will collect all windows into a single ‘space,’ but you will be able to once again use Expose/Spaces. Enjoy!
