So is the unity sidebar sticking a new feature. I run apps and the sidebar stays over the top blocking access to the app you're trying to run

Do you mean the launcher? Could you please provide a screenshot? – Nicolas Raoul May 31 '11 at 4:45

I had some sort of problem with chrome (dev) if you press Super/start twice it should slide back hope this work if this doesn't work you could do is open a different program through the dash (press super/start) I don't know why this some happens.
