When I change the sensibility of the launcher in the "Change Desktop Background/Behaviour", for the auto-hide mode, it doesn't really change. I can't appreciate the change. As a consequence it is hard to bring it up and annoying. Is it like that in all PCs or is it in the Apple Computers?

Install CompizConfig Settings ManagerInstall compizconfig-settings-manager. Open it and edit Ubuntu Unity Plugin: Set Launcher Reveal Pressure to 1 (instead of 20 - default).

Be careful with changing settings in CCSM, though!

It sometimes happend to me that some things didn't work as they should after I changed some settings in CCSM. You can reset all these settings by doing what is described here. – Jakob May 4 '12 at 6:48
